Infra Red to Ultra Blu
Perception plays a huge part in the way we take in reality. Photographing using only the invisible Infrared part of the color spectrum renders dark skies and light vegetation. Photos can take on a surreal appearance with an enhanced feeling of depth and sometimes resemble night shots.
These were shot with a camera which I had converted to Infrared (IR) by a filter over the sensor. Shooting in IR yields a different tonal range than a person would get from an ordinary camera. IR photos are often printed in black and white. I work with the color channels in the file to produce the vivid blue tones.
I have been a commercial photographer in the Pacific Northwest for over 40 years. I had a studio and shot for Stash Tea, Baggallini, Reser’s, and many Northwest businesses, as well as many artists and performing groups.
