Infrared Photography at Digital ImageMaker
We are passionate about infrared photography, both digital and analog, and with both specially converted digital cameras and will normal digital cameras, including infrared landscape, portraiture, abstract, pinhole and fine art photography.
For those new to infrared photography we have a great series of articles that will help you to get going with digital infrared, both at the shooting end and at the processing and use end of the process. We explain how it works, how different subjects will respond when shot in infrared, exactly what gear you need to do it (not that much) and how to make sensible choices over filters, lenses and more. We also cover the common faults and how to overcome them.
Camera conversion involves removing the IR blocking filter most digital cameras have and replacing this with either clear glass or a visible light blocking/infrared light transmitting filter, like the Hoya R-72. In this series of articles we discuss not only why you might want to do this but also the sort of photography you can do with a converted camera, plus details of the processing of the resulting images.
This series of articles covers a range of techniques and approaches, how to tackle particular types of subject and more. We cover image processing in Photoshop and other programs, cover RAW processing and more.
