Infrared Photography: Shooting and Editing

Tony Sweet
Duration:   8  mins

Infrared photography can result in some dramatic images. In this video, professional photographer and editor Tony Sweet ventures into Charleston, South Carolina, and shows you what image choices, colors, and textures offer the best infrared photography results. He takes you into the editing suite to process an infrared image.

Using a super wide-angle lens, Tony shoots a thick bed of dark green plants growing between bordering brick walls. The color green renders as pure white in the infrared format. In post-production, he desaturates the image, adds contrast, and uses a softening filter to create a glowing effect.
