In infrared photography, the film or image sensor used is sensitive to infrared light. The part of the spectrum used is referred to as near-infrared to distinguish it from far-infrared, which is the domain of thermal imaging. Infrared light is invisible to the human eye, but with the use of special filters this light can be captured by a camera. It puts a whole new meaning to what we know as regular pictures. Though infrared photos may not seem appealing, they can easily present a new perspective. The eclectic images developed from the heat sources of your subject or landscape using an IR lens, will bring drama to your photographs. Here is an awesome showcase of Infrared Photography for your inspiration. Enjoy!
