I have been experimenting with infrared photography using my iPhone 13 Pro. And the keyword here is “experimenting”. There is a lot of trial and error. But I do see some interesting possibilities. Infrared is a part of the color spectrum we can not see. Creating such an image with an iPhone requires covering its lenses with an infrared filter, allowing only light in the infrared spectrum to pass through. The filter is very dark which results in unusually long exposures. So, mounting the phone on a tripod is often necessary. The RAW file then requires significant post-processing. I have been using Lightroom for mobile for conversion to black and white, adjusting exposure, contrast, sharpening, and noise reduction. I then use the app, Snapseed, for some final tweaking.
I’ll be exploring infrared possibilities further in the coming days and will be sharing what I am learning.

Very nice! I never thought of trying InfraRed images with my iPhone! I do a lot of mult-image panoramas with my iP11 Pro and they come out very well! I will have to try this! Again Very Nice Image!

Thanks Reed. There’s a bit of a learning curve and mounting the filter can be a challenge.
