50 Stunning Examples of Infrared Photography for Your Inspiration


Infrared photography can generate some truly awesome and splendid photographs. Infrared photography does not vary extensively from normal photography. The only difference in infrared photography is that the image sensor is sensitive to infrared light which lies between the visible and microwave portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. Therefore, infrared light sensors allow the camera to catch any light which is not visible to human eye.

What is infrared photography?

Basically, infrared photography or IR photography refers to capturing images in infrared light. This is done with the help of special apparatus. There are different methods to capture IR photos. Since you need special cameras to capture IR photos, you can either buy a special digital camera which is somewhat sensitive to IR waves or convert your normal camera in order to capture infrared light.

Some special film cameras with infrared film are also available. Such films are extremely expensive, and require special handling. However, if you buy these films, you will not have to modify your camera. You can also purchase IR filters that will filter out the visible light and will only leave IR light. By using IR filters, you will drastically reduce the waves that hit the camera’s sensor. In this way, IR filter increases the exposure times.

Infrared Filters

An infrared filter can be defined as a filter that captures infrared light by filtering out the visible light. Infrared light is not normally visible to human eyes; however, pictures captured in infrared light have an amazing look. Such filters block most of the visible light and only let infrared light to pass through. You may need to use a tripod and turn up the exposure because of the amount of light coming through the filter.

Below, we have mentioned some IR filters that we would recommend:

1. Hoya 58mm RM-72 Infrared Filter
2. Opteka HD² 58mm R72 720nm Infrared X-Ray IR Filter
3. Leica E39 UVa/IR Filter, black
4. NEEWER® 58MM – IR720 Infrared Filter
5. Hoya 67mm RM-72 Infrared Filter

We hope that this showcase of infrared photography will surely inspire you.
