Through the looking glass Thursdays!



As you might guess, this is a series that will be featured every Thursday.

 And as the name suggests, we will be sharing the stories and experiences that lay beyond the camera lens.

"Through the looking glass" is our way of giving you a peek into our image making adventures,

and sharing some insight into the images we love.



Today's Image...   


Title: Adieu Mon Coeur

Location: The Sacré Cœur Basilica (Sacred Heart)

Paris, France

 Photographer: Ryan



The Journey

A quiet sunrise in paris, while dreamers dream and the scent of fresh bread and espresso fills the air.

A leisurely stroll up the streets of Montmartre, winding through charming alleys and crumbling doorways...

The ultimate playground for writers, poets, artists, and romantics.


 The Medium

Digital Infrared Photography 

...As written by Ryan...


Pardon me, but you have a little infrared on you.

Infrared? What's that? and where?

I suppose you hadn't noticed it because Infrared is a spectrum of light that is invisible to the human eye.

In order to see or capture it you'll need special equipment.

Infrared viewers, Infrared film in a film camera, or a modified digital camera-

which is what was used above.


Why would I want to do this you ask?

One reason, is that you can create very beautiful, surreal images.

Otherworldly scenes where the sky and water look dark and ominous,

foliage & grass appear to glow as if covered in snow.

This is my favorite reason, and why I love it.

It is also worth mentioning that a second reason for using infrared photography

is not for aesthethic purposes. 

It is also widely used for scientific or forensic reasons.

(I'll spare you the details)


If you would like to see Infrared in action, please view our short clip here:
