Infrared photography is not for everybody. The process of taking one is so freakin’ cumbersome.

First you compose your image without a filter. You set your focus point to your desired place. You screw on your infrared filter. You then hope that your camera would focus on your wanted location (if not, repeat second and third step). Finally, you dial in the customized white balance for your camera and the correct exposure settings.

Press the shutter and cross your finger that the final image is spot on.

But it doesn’t end there. You still have to post process the photo to correct your sky and foliage color.

And yet I kept on doing it. Ugh.
