Overview

Infrared photography can provide unique and flattering portraits, eye-catching close-ups of flowers, travel photographs unlike any you've ever seen before, and, if you know a few tricks, a new perspective on sports photography. You may have seen infrared photos without even being aware that they are infrared images! This full-color, hands-on book includes numerous do-it-yourself tutorials that show you how to convert your existing camera for IR use. You'll learn how to take infrared photos with both snapshot cameras and digital SLRs using a full range of shutter speeds and lens openings. You don't need a costly IR filter - you'll learn how to make your own! You'll be amazed to learn that many cameras, including dSLRs and consumer cameras like Canon PowerShot and Nikon CoolPix models, can be converted to shoot infrared photos full-time. Digital Infrared Pro Secrets will help you blow the lid off of IR photography!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Infrared photography, which captures the nonvisible parts of the electromagnetic spectrum by filtering the lens to remove visible light, was once used primarily to create eerie landscapes or for scientific or military use. A prolific author of photography guides, Busch has expanded the method into a separate art form, applying it to people, flowers, and architecture. He describes which cameras work best for infrared photography, how to shoot infrared with a simple digital camera or with a digital SLR, and even how to convert a camera to full-time infrared. This highly detailed guide is not for the point-and-shoot photographer, but collections serving advanced photographers may want to include it.
