Photography is an art form which deals with manipulating light, angles, shades and hues, distance, perspective and other aspects to capture great moments both big and small alike that could tell a story or evoke a certain emotion from the people who view them.
It's a craft in which the artist continues to explore various techniques and avenues to frame a scene, landscape, emotion, or an experience in the best possible way. In this regard, Italian photographer Paolo Pettigiani has been trying out a technique utilizing the infrared spectrum to take photos.
His latest work explores two fascinating infrared contrasts: the imposing concrete jungle of Dubai and the amazing tropics of the Maldives. Pettigiani's work is primarily created using full-spectrum converted cameras. While the Dubai photographs used a converted Nikon D750, the Maldives shots were taken using a converted DJI Mavic Pro 2.
If you look at his photos, it might seem like filters have been applied on them but the sharpness and the intricacy of using the right tools and equipment make them a cut above normal photos with filters applied. Take a look here and see his collection of surreal and colorful infrared photos.
