Mirrorless Q&A: Why Digital Infrared?

Today’s Post by Joe Farace

For some time, Mark & I have been planning a podcast to answer questions from Mirrorless Photo Tips readers but can’t afford it at the present time. That’s one reason why the Support Us button was added. If you’re tech savvy and would like to donate your time to help Mark and I start a podcast, please click Contact.

Today is the next in a series answering some of the most frequently asked question we receive.


Q: Why does the blog have so many posts about infrared photography?

A: That’s also an easy one to answer. Our posts—Mark’s, Mildred and mine—on infrared photography get more page views than other topics that we write about. This is a clear message that people like reading about how each of us captures and processes digital infrared images. Mark also tell me that when he conducts workshops or PhotoWalks, people often ask him about infrared photography and tell him they enjoy our posts on the subject.

My friend Deborah Sandidge, who wrote Digital Infrared Photography: Photo Workshop, produces amazingly beautiful images using her own special techniques. Similarly Mark and Mildred have their own unique visions and we use this blog to share these approaches with you. And that’s another reason why I sponsor Infrared at the Meadows workshops during the summer. Click here and scroll to the bottom for details.

Q: What’s the deal with the LifePixel coupon code?
