Urban landscape photographers or cityscape photographers often use a range of filters to create dramatic effects and in this gallery I have used a near-infrared technique devising a new perspective on my London photography and rural landscape photography. Usually an "infrared filter" is used which lets infrared (IR) light pass through to the camera but blocks all or most of the visible light spectrum (the filter looks black or deep red). Intense "in-camera effects" can be obtained, false-colour or black-and-white images with a dreamlike appearance, enhanced by any foliage strongly reflecting in the same way visible light is reflected from snow. The other benefits of infrared techniques on urban photography include very dark skies and the penetration of atmospheric haze, causing clouds to become more prominent.
