Beyond that, the information is vague and the portraiture is largely tacky. Many of the models are shown in unnatural poses. In some cases, their modern wardrobes and hairstyles are completely inappropriate for the dreamy/old-time/otherworldly locales in which the photographer has placed them. Subjects/clothing that have a more timeless quality---baby photos, wedding portraits, boudour (sp?) photos, theatre costuming, 4H photos, etc.---can work great in IR. Most of the graduation portraits here do NOT, and are almost painfully pretentious.
Although not about portraiture, "Infrared Landscape Photography", also by this publisher, gives much better technical and aesthetic information on the uses and special considerations of IR films.
