[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I bought an Infrared filter and read all about how to take the shots and how to post process them (which is quite complicated) but the results were terrible.

After doing some research on the internet I found that most cameras have a filter built in which blocks IR light - the way to check is to point a TV remote at the lens and see if the camera sees it and mine doesn't.
You can get your camera modified so that its a dedicated IR camera but that's a bit extreme.

This is an IR simulation done in Photoshop, there are lots of great examples on the web or flickr

Olá Jack,
Many thanks for the tips.
At the first opportunity I will try, too, but I tell you right away that I have found this essay to be successful.

Hello Jack,
Indeed a interesting way to shoot photos....Nice details and composition....
