Hoya R72 Infrared FilterThe Hoya Infrared filter is recommended by professional photographers.

Infrared filters block light from the visible spectrum, i.e what we see. And passes only infrared light, that is invisible to us. This allows you to get these new effects in your photography.

Hoya R72 Infrared Filter

It blocks the visible spectrum and passes only infrared light 

For infrared photography you just need a camera and a tripod, plus an infrared filter. A remote control is recommended but not strictly necessary (you can use the camera timer). You must focus the photograph and frame it before placing the filter onto the lens, just select a standard opening aperture and a long exposure time. We recommend using a remote control or failing that, a camera timer to avoid vibration and image blur, since we are using a slow shutter speed. If you are taking a colour photograph be aware of white balance.

Do as many tests you need to get a picture with predominant red. Once we have our red colored photograph we can start editing; if for example you use Photoshop you only have to open the Image tab, settings and channel mixer. Once there, with the output channel selected in red, adjust the blue colour to 100% and red to 0%. Now select the output channel in blue, and repeat the action in reverse; adjust the red colour to 100% and 0% to blue. You don´t need to adjust the green colour. Then add some final adjustments of levels and colours to your liking ... and there you go! They'll love the results!
