When I received my book a few day ago, I really could not put it down. Deborah has a style of writing that is easy yet very informative. This is the first IR book I've had that made IR digital photography seem so approachable and within reach...no matter what your level of expertise. The different assignments certainly make it easy to get started in a very concrete way. This book is loaded with information on how to be creative with your infrared work in the camera and later in the computer with different editing programs. It really is a must if you want to get the very best out of your infrared work with a filter over your lens or with a converted camera.

If you are looking for more meat and potatoes in IR photography and you already know how to use Adobe Photoshop beyond the basics, then this book will totally disappoint you. Look elsewhere.

This book was easy to read, cover-to-cover, in less than 90 minutes. In the balance, its total content seemed represent more of a beginner's (i.e first timer's) Photoshop how-to book than an in-depth resource on infra red (IR)photography. I was put off by its very simplistic presentational style, and would not recommend it to an intermediate level photographer. While I gained a few useful tips from reading it, I found more useful material by spending 90 minutes on the internet.

The book is a must read and the author has an exceptional style in delivering the information in a very easy yet rich way. Structured in a very systematic way, each subject in the book is more interesting than the one before it. This is a book which has inspired me to learn about IR photography and it is full of ideas to take your IR photography to the next level. I really enjoyed this book. I learned new ways to look at things and how to photograph them. This book really made me realize that there is a new way to look at the world around me and how to photograph it better- the IR way.
Of two bookcases full of books on photography, this is one of the few that I consider indispensable. Highly recommended.

After buying 7 or 8 books on IR photography, finally one that has something to share besides a bunch of the author's pictures. The author puts in chapter after chapter of valuable insights on how best to use your Infrared converted camera. I have been shooting IR for 6 years, and thought I had a handle on the whole technique. Deborah Sandidge has opened my eyes to many more possibilities for this type of photography. I got the referral for the book from Life Pixel, a company who has converted few cameras to Infrared for me in the past. A great reference source. I'm going through it for the third time, and trying the suggested exercises.

I enjoyed learning the technical aspects of infrared lighting and how it differs from from normal photography (including spectral graphs and histograms) and I was pleasantly surprised at all the beautiful example photos along with the camera settings she used for capturing the images. Deborah provides many tips about how to think & what to be aware of when composing to shoot for IR. It is not only a technical book about shooting in infrared, it is also a great resource of how to compose for IR (how to think the way the IR sensor will interpret the light) and landscape techniques for IR and any type of photography. She includes lots of photoshop tips, Orton effect, mirrored images, painting with light, HDR imaging (one of my favorites) and lists of useful camera equipment such as IR filters (& places to convert your DSLR for IR), lenses, tripods, software, etc... I have read & re-read many of these chapters and think of it as more of a workbook than something you read and put on the shelf. She has assignments in the chapters and a website for posting & sharing these assignments. I have read so many photography books over the years (Bryan Peterson, Jim Zuckerman, Scott Kelby, Ben Willmore) and this is my favorite book because it is loaded with useful & diverse information for any type of photography.
The tips for using PhotoMatix, Photoshop & various filters is worth the price of this book alone but when she is able to get me to think "outside of the box" then she has really won me over. I am seeing things differently which has caused me to slow down and rethink my shot before I start snapping away. Some of the standard rules (landscape/3rds/shapes & patterns) still apply but she also gets you to think how these rules can be broken to capture an even better photograph.

This book is more about how to take photographs than Infrared Photography. Very little information on how to "develop" your images. I was expecting more detailed PS developing techniques with examples of layers used, etc. The time of day when the example photos were shot would have been helpful.
Also, too much third party software discussion.

Having shot IR for over a year now and at the same pace been following Deb's work, the book is everything I expected it to be. Technically to the point, thorough explanations and set ups, and very informative towards certainly IR photography but digital photography in general. Being one who over the past year has picked up a lot of information about near infrared photography, Deborah's book will definitly take my interests and output to a new level. This book is filled with the type of structured information one could only expect from a professional photographer like Deborah Sandidge.
