Infrared photography can be described as a sensor that is sensitive to infrared light. This type of photography is also called unseen photography, as we cannot see the infrared light (IR light). So whenever we use equipment that can capture IR photos, it means that we will be able to see things that are not visible to our eyes.
Even Photoshop cannot mimic the original picture of infrared photos due to different color, textures, leaves, human skin and plants. IR photography is a different type, and some people may not like it. So to explore more about these, we need to see few examples, and I hope it will expand your horizon of photography topics.
