About the Author
Laurie has a MFA in photography from Ohio University and a BFA from RIT. A gifted photographic educator for over 30 years, Laurie teaches classes and workshops throughout the United States as well as internationally.
Laurie Klein is recognized worldwide for photographing almost exclusively in the arresting infrared spectrum. Her work embodies a soft, passionate style that most often depicts the feminine experience, relationships and landscapes. She began photographing with infrared film as a bio-medical photographer, using the medium for diagnostic and research purposes. After studying with Ansel Adams in the mid-1970s, she realized there were other applications for IR and began her journey into fine art photography.
Kyle Klein began assisting wedding photographers during his freshman year of high school, and by the age of 19, he was photographing 10 weddings a year. A graduate of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and Tufts University with a BFA in Photographic Processes, Kyle became the Production Manager of a commercial and biomedical photographic studio on Beacon Hill in Boston.
In 2013, Kyle opened his photography business and began photographing events, local and destination weddings, professional and social portraits, wildlife and landscapes. He is a consultant for studio owners, and teaches photography, workflow and Photoshop skills.
Kyle spent two months in the spring of 2014 on a photographic expedition in Africa, capturing wildlife and endangered species with the help of a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign called The Warm Heart of Africa”.

IR photos, whether taken with a converted camera or using a filter are shot with one of several IR frequencies (590, 720, 830 are common). While every picture had info on lens, ISO, F-stop, etc, none of them said which filter was used.
As someone coming into IR and getting a beginner book, that would have been quite helpful.
Hi Kyle, Hi Laurie:
I just purchased your wonderful book on infrared photography. As a limited-edition fine art photographer, I’ve always wanted to get into infrared photography as an artistic medium. For your information only, I believe I detected a small error in the very beginning of your book. Either that, or I am misinterpreting something incorrectly (which I’ve done before). On page 6 under the subheading Light in the Electromagnetic spectrum, in the last two sentences of the second paragraph, it states: "Light waves above 1200nm fall into the mid to far infrared areas of the electromagnetic spectrum. Our eyes perceive light of that wavelength as yellow, which is why lemons appear yellow to the human eye." Visible light (that part of the electromagnetic spectrum to which most photographers are accustomed) absorb all the colors except yellow (with respect to the lemon) and reflect the yellow wavelength (570nm) of light to our eyes, which you eloquently state in the first paragraph of the same subheading. But I’m a bit confused why you stated that we see the color yellow being reflected off the lemon in the infrared wavelengths (700 – 1200nm). Please don’t think that I am criticizing your book. I am not! In fact, I found the subject matter in the book to be among the best of all the articles and former publications that I have ever read. I’m just genuinely curious about these two sentences (as they relate to each other) and wonder if I’m really missing something.

I would highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to get into infrared photography or take their work to the next level.

i had checked the contents via "Look Inside" and had been excited to see the use of flash listed. another dis-appointment: two short paragraphs pertaining to the fill flash used on one shot of a person is not very helpful. There is nothing of any depth in this 127 page volume.
i recommend using the internet to search for info - You Tube is pretty good.
For me as a novice on infrared and trying to detect of it is worth tot invest on hardware and time it was very helpful.
