Discovering the Power of Infrared Nature Photography

February 12, 2024

Infrared is gaining in popularity among landscape and nature photographers, but can feel overwhelming and daunting if you're not sure where to start. I've been wanting to dabble in it myself, but haven't really figured out where I need to look to start my journey.

One particular photographer has garnered my attention as being an expert in infrared nature photography. On this week’s F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast, we sit down and talk with Tony Sweet. Tony is a Nikon Legend Behind the Len. After a successful career as a jazz musician, Tony settled on photography as his chosen means for personal expression. Over the last 30 years, Tony has become an in-demand speaker throughout the United States and Canada on Photography and creativity.

On this week's episode, we discuss:

  • Tony's journey into nature photography.
  • The role that finding a mentor played in Tony's progression as a photographer.
  • Tips on finding a good mentor.

  • Tony's obsession with infrared nature photography.
  • Actional tips on how to get into infrared nature photography, including nanometer choices and resources.
  • And a lot more!

Over on Patreon this week, Tony and I recorded a bonus episode all about his approach to making photographs, which I think you will enjoy a great deal!
