Scottsdale, AZ and Gloucester, MA

MARCH - MAY 2017


Looking forward to spring in Gloucester MA. Will be traveling across country soon with our two Havanese.  Cuba suffered a ACL tear but is healing well with conservative treatment. I do love Arizona for the winters with delightful falls and springs. Best of both worlds.

Wishing you a Happy Spring!   Judith
Terravita Art League Exhibit at the Desert Pavilion in Scottsdale AZ  will be featuring my work during March to mid May.  Open House March 18, 10-2 and opening celebration March 25, 5:45 - 8 pm.

Infrared Photography
Infrared photography captures invisible form of light beyond the visible spectrum (or below the red). Digital cameras are converted to infrared or near infrared cameras by removing the hot mirror or infrared cut off filter that would normally block infrared. A different filter is added in the specific range of infrared light you wish to capture. Some infrared converted cameras can record a small degree of visible light in the red range of the spectrum to produce color or supercolor infrared, such as this image. Red and blue channels are flipped in Photoshop to produce a blue sky. Hues can also be adjusted.

* I shoot with super color infrared 590 mn with a Sony mirror less camera- this adds some near infrared - next to red to allow some saturated color.
* Anything alive will reflect IR light - green parts of plants will appear bright white in near infrared - due to chlorophil transparency in infrared light.

* Surreal - differs from visible light with different tones and many challenges with extensive post-processing work!
* Wood's effect - foliage strongly reflects light causing dreamlike white foliage. And water or sky reflects infrared light to produce dark water and sky.
Infrared Photography is an experimental process of discovery! Hope you enjoy these new images.
