Infrared photography can give some unique images with some kind of an unworldly feel. Mathieu Stern wanted to see what it would look like to take portraits with this technique. He converted two cameras to shoot infrared, but they capture different wavelength. With a little help from his friends, he took some portraits with the converted camera, as well as a regular one. He has shared the results with us, and they are really interesting.
Infrared photos can be surreal, wonderful and a great way to try something completely new. However, if you want to shoot them you may have to convert your camera. Fortunately, there’s an easier and cheaper alternative, and this video from Craig Roberts of e6 Vlogs shows you how to take infrared photos without altering the camera.
The easier way is to use the infrared filters. They’re affordable and give pretty good results, but there are some tricks to shooting with them if you want to get correctly exposed, sharp images. So let’s check out what you need to know before you add the IR filter onto your lens.
If you are a fan of infrared photography and timelapse videos, this video brings them together. South African filmmaker Matthew Rycroft lives in Salzburg, Austria – the birthplace of Mozart. Inspired by his music and this beautiful city, he created a moody timelapse followed by Mozart’s music. Like an opera with 3 acts, this video leads you through Salzburg through an atypical timelapse video.
An invisible force is arguably what propelled Donald Trump through this controversial, tumultuous election, landing him in the Oval Office to lead the entire nation of America as its 45th President.
The unexpected and shocking force that swept the country into a populist fervor culminated on January 20th, 2017, Inauguration Day, and I was there to capture it with the help of a unique and similarly silent force–infrared wavelengths.
Being able to see with a camera in complete darkness is a challenge. For stills we often have to resort to long exposures. For video it can be virtually impossible. Thankfully, the megapixel race is all but over, and camera manufacturers are focusing on high ISO capability. There’s a couple out there now that can get fairly decent results in near black conditions, but they’re not cheap.
The folks over at N-O-D-E, however have another option. Hacking a cheap action camera to give it some basic night vision ability. The cost in the video says it can be done for around $40, but this will depend where in the world you are. The particular camera he used seems to be much less expensive in the UK than it is in the USA. But, I’m sure pretty much any action cameras can be modified the same way.
The human eye is incapable of seeing infrared light, so Infrared photography is truly a way to show your audience something they can never see with their own eyes. This guide serves as an introduction to getting started with digital infrared photography.
Documenting nature isn’t always as cute and fluffy as we’d like it to be, and when it comes to the law of the jungle, the judge occasionally dons his black cap.
I would imagine that this video isn’t quite what Tan Nguyen expected to capture when he setup his GoPro pointed at this American Robin nest in his front yard, hoping to capture eggs hatching and chicks getting their first taste of life.
If you’ve ever seen thermal imaging footage, there’s a good chance it was captured with an infrared camera developed by Oregon-based FLIR Systems, a company that specializes in the design and manufacturing of thermal imaging cameras.
It’s for that reason that drone manufacturer DJI has teamed up with FLIR to create the Zenmuse XT, a thermal imaging camera and gimbal designed to be used on DJI’s Inspire and Matrice 100 drones.[Read More…]
