Photography is the art of capturing light. Infrared photography, on the other hand, is the art of capturing invisible light. If your looking for something new and unique to add to your photography arsenal then you came to the right place NIR Color is truly beautiful, surreal and will transform ordinary landscapes into something magical and ethereal.
- NIR Color uses “near infrared” light technology, along with infrared “color” filters to add violet, blue, green, yellow, orange, and red colors, and all their combinations back into your image. The combination creates stunning imagery with otherworldly and mysteriously atmospheres.
When using “NIR” everyday objects differ sharply from those of visible light. A blue sky can sometimes appear very dark, while foliage often turns light to create an amazing and chilling contrast. Not only will the contrast make your photo ‘pop’, it will also transform the original color to ones that are dreamy and surreal using our infrared “color” filters. The decision is in your hands to tone down the color to ones that are classy, clean, and contrasted. Or boost them to a dramatic color of your choosing taking your infrared photography to a completely different level. With NIR Color you can quickly see how incredibly beautiful the world can be in a different light.

The past year definitely is the year for Instagr.am. Shortly after it’s initial launch back in October 2010, Instagram has gained over 7 million users which have shared over 100 million pictures and the numbers are climbing steeply, some predicted to reach 10 million by Thanksgiving. Alongside Instagram, a bunch of third-party apps follow suit, either as add-ons or get-on-the-wagon type useless apps. The list is ever-growing. To know which is the best amongst these apps, we need a complete guide or roadmap just to make sure that we’re getting the right app.
