Infrared Photography Scotland and Conference Photographer in Edinburgh

Hi All

The Year is up and running now, I had a conference photography assignment in Edinburgh this week and at the end of the week I took some infrared photos in and around Edinburgh, some sports photography at Dunbar at the weekend.

So a quick reminder, as to the some important aspects of Infrared photography 

You need sunlight

Preferably some clouds and if possible trees

Metalic surfaces work well in infrared, to produce punchy contrast images, releasing light that the naked eye cannot see

Be careful with the focussing, sometimes manual is better

Shoot at midday where possible, it's the exact opposite of normal landscape photography when you shoot in low light away from intense sunlight

There is no pattern as to which lens works better, sometimes the cheapest lenses work better in infrared, it just depends on how your camera has been converted

Experiment with software, not just Photoshop, but don't overdo it.  I won't spend more than 5 minutes or so on any photo

Anyway, that's all for now

Until next time

Kind Regards


Colin Wright Photography
