    Infrared lens filters give you the option of shooting photos that record light from the infrared spectrum. In the process, the IR lens filter blocks some or all visible light. When the filter is attached to the lens, the camera records infrared photos. But you then can remove the infrared lens filter to resume shooting normal photographs. Using infrared lens filters ends up creating images that look a lot like normal light photos. However, the colors are quite a bit different than what you see with normal light photos. Infrared lens filters are available in various strengths, designated by nanometers (or nm). A filter with a smaller number allows some visible light into the photo. Larger number filters create photos with only infrared light. A 720nm filter is roughly average versus other infrared lens filters.
