Capturing photos or videos in infrared allows the shooter to observe a spectrum of light well beyond which the normal eye can’t see. It’s an artistically pleasing process that may help surface a plethora of details that are usually hidden and if done right, the results are fascinating. Filmmaker Philip Bloom takes the process to a whole other level with his latest “Las Vegas in Infrared” video. Wielding the Sony RX100 IV, Bloom graces viewers with an eerie depiction of Sin City: passersby slowly trotting along city sidewalks, bizarrely-colored landscapes and Beethoven’s “Seventh Symphony” booming in the background. For the lack of a better word, it’s a total doomsday.

Bloom recorded the entire video from the seat of a car with his little beast of a camera in 250 FPS video burst mode. In a blog post, the filmmaker further explained that he swapped out the device’s infrared-blocking filter with a special pass filter created by Life Pixel.

Take a look at Philip Bloom’s blog to learn more about the project, here.
