Different Styles of Infrared Photography
As you all know I am a specialist infrared photographer, often found out and about East Lothian and throughout Scotland, what I wanted to talk about today was the various uses for infrared converted cameras. Whilst I like to photograph black and white infrared with sparkling white trees and extreme contrasty photographs with vibrant colours like the next guy, I also like to use the camera in a conventional way. Although we require bright sun for most infrared photos, you can still use them on an overcast weather day, especially if the sun is peeking through, the main thing is to have some kind of contrast in the sky. As infrared cameras have extensive dynamic range, they can be used to portray fine art black and white images, depicting strong detail and contrast after editing. I have sold a number of landscape photos to clients who were unaware that they are infrared, they just liked the dramatic nature of the photograph. Long exposure on an infrared camera also results in more drama and detail in the sky or water, if this is part of the scene. When it comes to colour, infrared converted cameras can enable you to switch colours and tone in a more natural way to conventional editing. You can also bring out the blue sky and easily decrease or increase saturation according to the colour effect you are going for. I would say that in about 50% of the photos I post on social media, the viewer is unaware they are infrared. I can like everyone else, revert to taking a dramatic black and white infrared shot or even a colour image with red trees for instance, when it is obvious that the photo is infrared. however as a professional corporate and event photographer working in Scotland, often I want to inject some realism into my photography for my clients.
Hope this helps.
Until next time.
