B+W

Infrared Filters

B+W Infrared filter - the special filter for extreme contrasts. With the B+W Infrared filter, the existing residual sensitization can be exploited for experimental black-and-white photos with high contrasts.

Green leaves and grasses are reproduced from bright to white. A "wood effect" with dramatic contrast between clouds and sky can be achieved.

Tips and Tricks


  • The IR-effect occurs in bright light only
  • Define focus first, then screw on the filter
  • Consider IR-engraving on the lens (if existent)
  • Select small stop
  • Determine right exposure time with test series
  • Use tripod due to long exposure times

Please note


  • Check the IR-suitability of your camera first: To do this, just point the IR-remote control at the camera and press any function key. If the monitor of the camera shows a white light spot, this means that the camera sensor has got enough sensitivity left. 
  • IR-photographs need to be edited with a post processing application: Convert the photograph into black-white mode and use the automatic contrast or - to obtain an even better result - increase the contrast by using the histogram.
