Exploring the range of possibilities available with infrared film, which responds to light beyond the visible spectrum, this book presents advanced techniques for capturing impressive images. Beginning with an overview of the basics of light, sensitivity, optics, and film handling, this book builds on introductory techniques to teach photographers how to visualize the effect of infrared film on their subjects. The final step of creating infrared images takes the photographer into the darkroom, where topics include reducing or enhancing grain, improving shadow detail, and altering contrast.
