Holiday Gift Guide 2007: Part 4: For Photo Enthusiasts
I first learned about digital infared photography in a My Precious article for JPG Magazine. Hoya makes a screw on filter that mimics the effect of infrared photography by blocking visible light and allowing infrared light to show. You can purchase a Hoya 52mm RM-72 Infrared Filter for $35.25 USD through Amazon here. The above photo was taken by Paul Cloutier.
Digital infared photos work best with long exposures with a tripod. For photographers who don't want to lug around a hefty traditional tripod, the Gorillapod is a good choice. It is compact and has legs that wrap around almost anything. It comes in different sizes for small point and shoots and heavy SLR cameras with zoom lenses. From $22.50 USD through Amazon. Joby, the manufacturer, also sells this item sans packaging.
