The footage is displayed below, while it is not perfect, and kinda shaky, there is also a valuable BTS. Hit the Just for some behind the scenes and my notes of the video here is the behind the scenes video that they took (probably to have some memory in case that iPhone would never be seen again).

The Photographers Society PHOTOGRAPHER FOCUS · Luca Adamo If you ask me for it, I will say that Luca Adamo makes mainly street photography. But it is not easy to define in a univocal way which can be understood as such: it is not even possible to find among photographers who love the genre even an uniform idea about the elements or traits that can define it.

Infrared Photography by Thom Hogan Infrared is a spectrum of light beyond that which we normally see. Despite having an IR blocking filter installed between the lens and the CCD, most digital cameras still react to some near infrared energy, though at levels far lower than visible light. To take “infrared” pictures—i.e., photos primarily made up of near infrared energy—you need to filter out the visible light and only allow the near infrared and infrared spectrum through to the film or sensor. The easiest way to do this is to use a Wratten filter, which you can find at most professional camera shops (see sidebar at right). The Wratten series (and other dedicated "infrared filters" [misnamed because they don't actually filter infrared]) are very dense filters, nearly opaque.
