Todays' post is a dedication to Laurie Klein.
I met Laurie at a talk she gave in London last month. She was very inspiring ( and slightly scary!) I think I was a bit in awe because she'd been taught by Ansel Adams ( a Godfather of photography!) Laurie pioneered infra-red photography in landscapes when previously it had only been used for medical and forensic purposes. Laurie also began to use infra-red film for wedding photography, which is unusual but really cool! Check out some of her work at: www.laurieklein.com
Here are some of my own photographs converted to infra-red. See how it gives a soft and surreal feel, especially around the trees? Infra-red photography can change an image, affecting the mood and making us look at things a bit closer. It's not just black and white.
