Infrared Photography: 35 Examples of Mysterious Pictures

In infrared, photography, the film or image sensor used  sensitive to infrared light. Usually, an “infrared filter” used lets infrared (IR) light pass through to the camera, but blocks all or most of the visible light spectrum (the filter, therefore, looks black or deep red).

When a filter  used together with infrared-sensitive film or sensors, false-color or black-and-white images can result, with a dreamlike or somewhat ghostly/spooky appearance.

As with most photographic techniques these days, faux infrared photography can be achieved with image manipulation software such as Photoshop.
