Infra Red Photography
The picture you see is what came out of the camera. It was not enhanced.
    WARNING! Never look through an IR filter while pointing it to the sun as the unseen
    heat will ruin the eyes.

    Infra Red (IR) is of different kinds. The one closest to the red spectrum is known as
    "near IR". IR photography refers to taking photographs of heat. Near IR is not heat.
    This is what is taken picture of normally. IR pictures look weird; see picture  below.

    Real IR starts at about 700nm. Lower than this will allow different wavelengths to
    reach the camera sensor, i.e. blue from 400nm to 500nm, green from 500nm to
    600nm, and red from 600nm to 700nm. Above 700nm requires more sophisticated
    and expensive equipment in photographing heat.  

    'picTeur' allows different IR filters to be attached to the point and shoot camera.
    Cameras with view finders might allow composition of the picture while pointing at
    the object. Others will completely make normal colors invisible, thus making it hard
    to compose the image. There are versions of point and shoot cameras that allow
    composition without difficult adjustments. Some cameras are converted so that the
    IR blocking filters are removed, thus allowing more heat to reach the camera sensor
    while visibly composing the image.

    This section of the website illustrates raw
    pictures taken at different levels of IR starting at
    IR filters come in different sizes. The larger
    they are, the more expensive the filters are.
    With step-up or step-down adapter rings, all
    sizes of IR filters can be used with the point
    and shoot camera
