Infrared photography or IR photography is a special type of photography which uses films and sensors with the help of its infrared light sensitivity; with its help you can bring special effects like false colors in a simple portrait.
Infrared photography has offered the photographers an entirely new dimension to the field. The spectrum is referred to as near-infrared to distinguish it from far-infrared, which is a part of thermal imaging. To visible light the film is usually sensitive; to sustain it an infrared-passing filter is used. The wavelength in the infrared photography is also longer than the visible light, which helps to obtain a clearer image and also it never delivers a black and white image until the photographer intend to.
There are two types of infrared photography popularized: Analog and Digital. Though digital photography and HDR are ruling the market but we cannot ignore the importance of IR photography. To take snaps in a dark room or to capture wildlife at night this is the best possible way for many photography pundits. I have collected a bunch of infrared photographs for this article for more convenience to get familiar with the topic.
