The Wonder of Infrared Photography

The Wonder of Infrared Photography Normal black-and-white photographs can bestow their subjects with a moody atmosphere, but the infrared version of the craft would do even Tim Burton's fairytale landscapes proud.  Here we have a watchful cat sitting regally in one picture while a walk in the woods is spiced up in the others. The tree root (bottom right) is highlighted perfectly within the blue-green grass.

Wonder and enchantment are two words that spring to mind when viewing the world through an infrared lens.  Whatever your personal photography taste, there's no question that infrared imagery spices up bland everyday life with a touch of the serene, and the surreal.
