"As with all creative arts, the artist needs to evolve and their sense and understanding grow." 

For the past year I have been working on ALTERNATIVE VISION, an endeavor to relive my past with Infrared Film.  It has been a blessing to kindle the spirit, and re-learn an old yet new craft. DSC_3482DSC_3482

 

For those of you that have not heard of Infrared, it is a series of light wavelengths that are invisible to the human eye.  The process by which we capture this invisible light has changed since the days of film, bearing way to the digital realm.  But learning to visualize and capture in this invisible world still necessitates specific skill sets, plus in my case the added capacity to relinquish the photo naturalist and embrace the surreal jungle.

Commonly labeled as “false color”, infrared processing requires the artist to make specific decisions that can have vastly different outcomes.  While some images are destined for a particular perspective, others are left to migrate through numerous creative paths.  Alternate Vision allows the scene to convey an unreal yet very serene perception.

A huge departure from my norm, this journey has evolved from early struggles to a personal challenge to learn and create, however, it still follows my pursuit of creating distinctive art.
