Shooting Bohol island in near-IR.

Here are some test landscape photos I took during a trip to Bohol, which captures the near infrared (~720 nm) portion of the EM spectrum. I tried several shots for each scene, mostly by trial and error to find the proper exposure. Since the near-IR wavelength cannot be readily seen by the naked eye, an infrared filter and post-processing were necessary. There were several websites that gave very valuable tips and instructions on from setting up the hardware to post-processing, which helped me arrive at these surreal, otherworldly-looking images. I guess my knowledge of remote sensing principles and experience in processing satellite images also gave me more than a head start too. There’s still so much to learn but I’d say this first attempt yielded satisfying results; it wasn’t bad at all.
