IR Photo Published in the Krakow Post

Wawel Hill - Krakow, Poland

The English newspaper The Krakow Post chose one of my photos to feature in their "Photo of the Month" competition for the August issue!

What Exactly is Infrared Photography?

Alpine Summer Flowers - Babia Gora, Poland

Here’s guessing that if you’ve had a chance to browse through these galleries, and don’t already consider photography as one of your passions or even hobbies, you are probably wondering what this Infrared Photography is all about.  I’m also betting there are more than a few photographers out there who are new to it as well, just as I was a little more than a year ago.  Maybe you’re wondering how it all works – how do you take a photo of a forest in the middle of a seasonal summer afternoon and at first glance have it appear as if it was taken on the frostiest of winter mornings? ...
