Hi, I'm Dan Reinecke with Unknown Media, and today I'm going to give you a little insight on infrared photography for beginners. Infrared photos are photos that capture a wavelength of light that is invisible to the human eye. Now what you need to do to accomplish this is to get an infrared filter to go over your camera's lens. When you look through the viewfinder you will see darkness. This is because the filter cuts out all light except for infrared light which again is invisible to the human eye. You'll want to use a tripod because you are going to be setting your camera to the bulb setting so you can take a long exposure. Typically you are going to need to hold the shutter open for anywhere between 10 and 30 seconds depending on your shot. Now each photo will be different so it will take a bit of practice, but once you get the hang of it, you'll be truly amazed at all the images that you can capture. I'm Dan Reinecke, and that's infrared photography for beginners. Take your best shot.
