I am a portrait photographer by trade but when I'm not shooting people I love to point my camera in other directions and experiment.

I use a converted infra-red camera to make these images. In infrared photography, the film or image sensor used is sensitive to infrared light.

The part of the spectrum used is referred to as near-infrared to distinguish it from far-infrared, which is the domain of thermal imaging. Wavelengths used for photography range from about 700 nm to about 900 nm.

When these filters are used together with infrared-sensitive film or sensors, "in-camera effects" can be obtained; colour or black-and-white images with a dreamlike, vivid appearance known as the "Wood Effect” (named after infrared pioneer Robert W Wood, an effect mainly caused by foliage (such as tree leaves and grass) strongly reflecting in the same way visible light is reflected from snow.
