Blog Guelph: In a different light

Today I've opted to showcase Guelph "in a different light"... via the dreamy, otherworldly 
infrared (IR) photography of Bruce Shapka. The photos I've chosen are reminiscent of landscapes I've been drawn to in 3D virtual worlds.

IR, as it applies to photography, is the art of capturing invisible light, and when done right the results, as you can see, are really attention grabbing!

If you're interested in learning about this technique there are numerous tutorials on the interwebs. For those with a DSLR, a good place to start might be photographylife.com's Introduction to Infrared Photography. iPhoneographers can check out infrared app reviews on lifeinlofi.com or iphoneography.com

Want to see more of Bruce's IR work? Check out his flickr set.

Guelphonographers, if you create any share-worthy infrared images, tweet them with the #guelphonography hashtag and/or add them to the guelphonography flickr group, okay?
