The Joys of Infrared Landscape Photography

If you have not shot in infrared before, it is a unique and fun form of photography that can breathe new life into even the most overly shot scenes. This neat video will show you some of the stunning, eye-catching images you can create with an infrared-converted camera. 

Coming to you from Thomas Heaton, this great video will show you the sort of landscape photos you can create with an infrared-converted camera. There are generally three ways to get into shooting infrared. First, you can purchase a camera built especially for the purpose, though these are generally rare. Second, you can use an infrared filter. Finally, you can have a camera converted. I personally prefer the final option. The problem with the filter is that modern cameras block so much infrared light that it requires extremely long exposure times. I had my first DSLR, a Canon T3i, converted by Life Pixel (I chose the Super Color IR option), and it allows me to use all my old EF lenses, plus it breathed new life into a camera that would have otherwise sat in my closet. Shooting in infrared is quite addictive and is a great way to invigorate your creativity just a bit. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Heaton.
