Infrared Photography

I've had an R72 Hoya filter for a while, I just never took the time to learn about it. Ghost Hunters got me interested in that type of photography a few years ago, hence the purchase.

The R72 filters out visible light allowing infrared light to pass through. Infrared light is not visible to humans.

IR Blocking filters are installed in all cameras. It's necessary, otherwise you'll get wigged out images. Some people pay for the filter to be removed ... I call this, "How to break your camera".
If there was a real purpose to IR Photography besides the fact that it's super artistic, I'd do it too, but I didn't pay the price I paid just to break my camera.
