Alternative Light

Show off!

What is the visible light spectrum? The visible light spectrum is the segment of the electromagnetic spectrum that the human eye can view. More simply, this range of wavelengths is called visible light. Typically, the human eye can detect wavelengths from 380 to 700 nanometers.

Our eyes only have the capability to see the light in the visible spectrum which is roughly from 380 to 700 nm. Light above the 700 nm is considered near infrared light. Adding near infrared filters in various wave lengths to the camera allows the viewer to see the surroundings in this alternative light. The light is present regardless but now it can be accessed. This type of photography adds a different dimension to my photography. It just deepens my appreciation for my Creator and His wondrous works that He has given us!


I took this image at my dad’s home. I used a fish eye lens to exaggerate the scene. I used a Fuji camera with a 720 nm.

This image was taken next door to my dad’s place using the same camera as the previous shot.

The first image was shot at a different wave length, 590 nm. Some filters will let in more visible light which produces more vibrant colors then visible light filters.
