To allow the light beams in the infrared range to reach a numeric camera sensor, you have to modify it: the manufacturers use a specific filter over the lens that prevent infrared light to reach it, for protection and avoiding side effects.

With a filter specifically designed to let only infrared beams pass, screwed onto the lens, you can shoot photos with strange tones.

I would like to test this method during an artistic nude shooting, maybe one day I can post the results on the site. Interested ? Use the Contact form to talk about it...
