For me, viewing infrared photography is like stepping into another world. I really like the feeling I get from these photos. Infrared photography is created with black and white infrared film. This type of film records the effects of infrared light, a spectrum beyond our range of vision. The effects result in an unearthly, dreamlike or silken quality with very definite contrasts not seen in the usual black and white photo. Because the photographer canít see infrared light, it is a gamble and the results are always a surprise.

I intend to further explore infrared photography during the coming year, so expect to see more pictures in this section!
