With three art degrees and aa a retired illustrator from Boeing Airplane Co., my camera is an extension of my talent base and not an after thought. With all this going for me, I have sought out information to make greater leaps in my phtotgraphic art.
I highly recommended this book because the Author does not toot his own horn, but rather shows by example how the process of great infrared images is best accomplished with cameras that are infrared sensative and those that are not. His stepwise "Scope and Sequence approach" with Photoshop or what have you, in the before to after production of great photos is superbe!
I highly recommend this book for anybody looking for the nuts and bolts of how to better his/hers own abilities in not only digital natural light photos but the Infrared side of this art as well!
A newer and much more comprehensive book is David Busch's Digital Infrared Pro Secrets,which explores the topic in a more wide-ranging and in-depth manner. For example, Busch's book shows you how to convert your own camera to infrared photography, how to make your own inexpensive IR filter, and how to build a viewfinder that by-passes the IR "blackout." In addition to landscape photography, that book has techniques for shooting architecture, portraits, sports, and other unconventional subjects.
Serious photographers should probably have both books. Farace's is a good guide to infrared fine art landscapes, while Busch's book is perfect for someone who intends to get serious about IR photography.
