As you know this professional photographer from Edinburgh shoots a lot of infrared photography, particularly at this time of year and I have often been asked why I shoot colour and black and white for infrared. Well the answer is I just like both, but for different reasons. I feel that black and white infrared is good if you want to create a realistic black and white image and if there are few or no trees in the image it is often difficult to distinguish it from a normal black and white photo, just one that has more contract detail and structure. For colour infrared photography I have totally abandoned reality and I want to go to a place that is magical and surreal. If I am on a corporate or wedding photography commission in Edinburgh or somewhere else in Scotland, I will probably be more likely to shoot some black and white infrared to retain the realism. So there you have it. More on this in the future. The two shots shown with this blog demonstrate the point.
