A Showcase of Infrared Photography

October 19th, 2011

In almost any problem solving situation, one tends to be told to think outside the box to find a solution. Basically asking us to look beyond the ordinary to find the extraordinary. One creative field that seems to shine as a beacon for taking this approach, and seeing the world in a very different way than most of us is photography. For example, today’s showcase which takes a look at some stunning infrared photography that exemplifies the principle of looking beyond the ordinary to find the extraordinary.

Take a tour of the world in a way that most never see it. Through this surrealistic lens the world is transformed into a vibrant and often breathtaking landscape. Such an inspirational collection awaits. Enjoy!

    Love these pictures, but the ones with snow make me want to go up north!

    Too bad that Kodak Aerochrome Film (the one that was used to take most of the photographs in this showcase) was discontinued recently and won’t ever be available again. I ordered some of the last 120 rolls of it from Germany. Cut by hand in total darkness to proper size by expert hands, because the film was already not longer sold nor 35mm, 120 or large format. It was only sold in huge aerial rolls.
    Too bad…
