Capturing invisible Hoboken light!
For the photography enthusiasts out there – Hoboken411 reader HansBrix submitted some very cool shots of Hoboken which were taken with an infrared filter on the camera lens.
Infrared photography produces very unusual, yet visually pleasing images – and back in the day, required special film. However, these days, infrared filters can be attached to many digital cameras as well. Keep in mind that not all digital cameras are equipped to properly take pictures like this, even if you think you have the right filter. HansBrix’s offered a good tip to see if your camera would be a candidate for infrared photography. Turn your camera on and point your TV remote into the lens. If you see a flashlight like reaction, then you should be good to go.
You can get some pretty in-depth information about Infrared Photography at Digital Photography FWIW.
(Note: HansBrix JUST got his filter, and has only recently begun experimenting. He ensured me as he spends more time perfecting the craft, the photos will improve.)
