Description: I’ve been experimenting with Infrared Photography for the last few years now. My goal has been to photograph wildlife in a different “light.” With infrared photography you have to take your camera apart and put special filters on the normal spectrum of light (400-700nm) while removing the factory standard filters that block infrared light (700-1800nm). You are effectively shutting down the normal spectrum of light and only allowing infrared light to hit the sensor. The results can be spectacular. This photo was taken on my WorldPix trip to Botswana, and shows how infrared light can soften a scene and portray the elephant in a completely different way. All sales from my photographs in Botswana will go back to support local causes in Botswana including the Love Botswana Outreach Center and Bana Ba Letsatsi a children’s home in Maun, Botswana. As a reminder, WorldPix is now officially a 501c3 non-profit, so photographs purchased from WorldPix are tax deductible, so effectively you can make a donation to great causes and receive a magnificent piece of art from one of our many excellent photographers.
