Visible Diffraction Calculator (Sneak Peek)!

I've built a new website that calculates diffraction for your camera and infrared filter! Select your camera and filter. The calculator will let you know which f-stops you can use to avoid diffraction. You can view this at https://www.diffraction.cam. That's diffraction dot CAM, as in camera, not dot com. I'll have a video explainer for this tool coming soon. Enjoy!

Chrome Profile Pack - Need Your Images!

I’m working on a free Chrome Profile Pack! This will include camera-specific profiles for Lightroom and Photoshop, giving you the flexibility to set a good white balance on raw files shot with an IR Chrome filter. To build this profile pack, I’ll need a raw image shot with IR Chrome from each camera model to be supported. Please share a raw or DNG IR Chrome image from your camera to help build this profile pack. Your files will only be used to create profiles and will not be shared. The resulting profile pack will be free!

The audiobook edition of Color Doesn't Exist: A Practical Guide to Infrared Photography is now available. You can hear a sample chapter in this video. You can also listen to the sample chapter or learn about any edition at colordoesntexist.com.
