Infrared photographs of the Dolomites reflected in an idyllic lake scene (where coniferous trees and other vegitation appear watermelon-pink as they reflect infrared light)  by Paolo Pettigiani.

      not much tinkering here. The film is sensitive to infared light rather than visible light. A lot of the film stock is ex-military used for detecting camouflaged bases and individuals. Richard Mosse used the same type of film in his work ‘The Enclave’.

        Interesting. I’ve just looked at his stuff and preferred it. Maybe because he had people in there to break it up a bit.

    You can get your dslr sensor converted to infra red fairly easily, if you wanted to get into this sort of photography, nice idea if you want to get more use out of an old camera. The shots illustrated aren’t a good example of the vast surreal landscapes you can create with a sensor converted to accept infra red.
