PRESS RELEASE: Rocky Nook Publishes 'Digital Infrared Photography'
How to Capture the Beauty of Infrared Imagery
SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -- To record "invisible light" has always been an intriguing and fascinating experiment. The infrared part of the light spectrum is outside the range of what the human eye can see but, with a digital camera, we are able to record only this "invisible light" while blocking the "visible" part. The results are often unusual, yet beautiful, renderings of otherwise fairly common scenes, and Digital Infrared Photography (Rocky Nook, $24.95) from Rocky Nook will show you how.
As far back as the 1960s artists have experimented with analog infrared photography, and those of us who are old enough might remember seeing the technique used on the album covers of Jimi Hendrix and Frank Zappa. Now, as we enter the digital age, new equipment and technology has opened up the exciting world of infrared photography to all.
This compact guide to infrared photography shows the beauty of infrared imagery while it shows you how to shoot these images with your digital camera. The book provides the basic theoretical background, information on cameras, filters and equipment, and lots of guidance on how to do infrared photography from image capture to post-processing.
This beautifully designed and illustrated book is the perfect companion for the aspiring photographer who seeks to explore new photographic territories.
