This is how camera sees the world if we cut the spectrum light leaving just a range of infrared rays.
Carljohan on the first plan.
I just love collecting mushrooms. I remember the excitement while I was a kid during those journeys to forerst.
This time I stopped to capture a fern leaf.
This is not an ordinary forest clearing. It is a swamp. Every year I am checking out if there are still plenty of sundews.
InfraRed world looks totaly different. The texture on that leaf looks so sticky. Well, it is just an impression. Or, it is not but we miss that when we see everything in all spectrum light ...
Real InfraRed picture looks very similar to the black and white capture, with loss of some contrast. The green turns white.
If you see pictures called IR with green replaced by pink, it means it is not a real IR, the image is an effect of postprocessing.
IR shows you the world without any colors. Just a difference between reflections of the light in a range of white and black.
Depending on the filter used, some of the visible spectrum light leaks may give a wider color tonality on the picture.
But we have to admit. IR will not give the result of the true black and white image. But it is a great addition to it. Most of cameras cuts out IR.
