  INFRARED PHOTOGRAPHY
Infrared photography is of interest to the amateur and commercial photographer and to scientists and technologists because it produces images that are not possible with conventional photographic films.
Infrared photographs have been used for the construction of charts, the study of sandbars and silting of navigable channels, the control of erosion and pollution, the charting of currents, and the study of marine life.
Infrared photography is one of the accepted tools of the applied photographer, and the imaginative worker should have little difficulty in recognizing its possibilities and enlarging its field.

 Reflected infrared photography: Films
Infrared sensitizing dyes were discovered early this century, but infrared materials were not widely available until the 1930's.
The 'light piping' means that infrared radiation entering the film structure, at say the leader, is able to internally reflect within the film base along into the bulk of the film within the cassette.
The limited infrared sensitivity means that care in the selection of a filter for use with this film is therefore imperative; the narrow-cut Wratten 87A, B, or C, for example, would lead to virtually no result.

 LifePixel Digital Infrared Photography IR Conversion And Modification Services.
Infrared film of many types has been available for decades and photographers have been using it successfully but not without some trial and error in their photography.
Because infrared film is sensitive to visible light as well as infrared light a special infrared filter needed to be attached to the front of the lens to block all visible light and only pass infrared light.
It is still possible to shoot digital infrared photography with an unmodified digital camera but the exposures become quite long and in most cases require a tripod, not to mention the need to place an infrared filter in front of the lens to block visible light.

 Haunted Chicago Infrared Photography Experiment
Infrared photographic film is also sensitive in part to the portion of infrared light called near-infrared, and so it should allow a similar ability to capture any anomalous activity that is associated with the near-infrared spectrum of light when used in conjunction with a standard 35mm SLR camera.
Due to the nature of the infrared light wavelength, some photography with infrared film will require focus adjustment of at least several percent, depending on the distance from the subject, regardless of what is seen through the viewfinder.
Infrared images however are in perfect focus on a different plane that that of visible light, slightly behind the plane of the negative.

 Infrared Photography 2
Infrared spectrum in the range from 700 to 925 is the region that is most accessible to conventional photography.
Sheet film holders are particularly troublesome with infrared photography and should be kept in the dark as much as possible.
Since the range of infrared spectrum beyond 1350 nanometers is thermal radiation and imaging here involves recording heat patterns, infrared film tends to be especially sensitive to heat and age fogging.

 Infrared photography - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This part of the infrared spectrum is referred to as near-infrared to distinguish it from far-infrared, which is the domain of thermal imaging.
Infrared photography was popular with 1960s recording artists, because of the unusual results; Jimi Hendrix, Donovan and the Grateful Dead all issued albums with infrared cover photos.
Infrared photography is usually not practical with these cameras because the exposure times become overly long, creating noise and motion blur in the final image.

 Infrared Photography: Photography Techniques: Learn: Digital Photography Review
With most imagers, even if they do respond to infrared light, their sensitivity to this part of the spectrum is very poor and exists many, many stops lower than their response to visible red, green and blue.
While the imaging chips in the majority of 2 and 3 megapixel cameras have a pronounced sensitivity to infrared light, they are teamed up with an IR absorbing element in the optical path that keeps the IR from spoiling visible light images.
Infrared wavelengths are longer and focus at a different distance behind the lens.

Infrared film is beyond the visual spectrum and focuses on a different plane.
Konica Infrared 750 is a panchromatic film that has a sensitivity covering 400nm to 500nm (violet to green) and from 640nm to 820nm (orange to near-infrared) and peaks at 750nm.

 eBay Guides - Infrared Photography
As infrared film exposes from the lower bands of near infrared (invisible light); it is indeed deceptive to use in an indoor setting.
As the lighting used in my photography is very bright, giving off very little visible light, additional lighting was needed to allow for the photographic exposure; even with the additional lighting, difficulties occur causing under or over exposure.
As the current lighting deals mainly in the primary red range of the visible light spectrum, a balance of the visible light spectrum was needed and excessive invisible light (infrared) was a primary concern with the indoor infrared photography, as I also had no means to measure it.

Infrared photography for aesthetic purposes is widespread and fine-art examples are pervasive in the world of photography.
This is true but this is not due to infrared "prints" but simply to the fact that there are indentations in the diagonal path where it is crossed by the other ones.
An infrared transmitting filter placed over the lens allowed only these newly formed wavelengths to pass on to the film, which was Kodak's High Speed infrared material.

 wrotniak.net: Infrared Photography with a Digital Camera
To answer the question briefly: photographs in infrared show quite unusual tonality, different than that to which we are used, and this may make them esthetically pleasing, at least in many cases.
Others, however, are so used to the large grain in infrared films, that they consider the noise a part of the "infrared look" and want to emulate the effect in the digital medium.

 Infrared Photography   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-11)
To the human eye, infrared is a colorless and invisible spectrum.
Fortunately for photographers, infrared light can be captured on film and via digital media, with interesting and sometimes colorful results.
The colors we see in IR photography come either from a chemical process (in the case of color IR film) or a combination of hardware and software (in the case of digital cameras.) For this reason, color IR photography is commonly called "false color" infrared.

 Infrared photography - popular myths
There are a lot of myths surrounding infrared photography, probably because IR is a bit of a pain to deal with and the effects are often somewhat unpredictable.
In fact, a useful way to think of IR photography is to call it “reflected IR photography,” as a reminder that you’re recording the infrared energy reflected from things (unless you point your camera right at the sun or whatever, of course).
However, “infrared light” is a convenient concept, since photographically-detectable IR (from around 700nm to apparently about 1200nm) behaves basically like visible light from a photographic point of view - it can be altered optically and doesn’t behave like gamma radiation or radio waves or anything.
