Infrared can offer a completely different pallet that standard film or digital capture. Because it has the ability to reach into a portion of the spectrum that our eyes are not able to capture, it results in a separate set of information. Kodak’s version of the film can offer a greater amount of grain than any other film to my experience, depending upon how it is exposed and developed, so that can add an additional dimension.
This image is of my children searching for newts alongside a pond. I felt that the scene demanded an interpretation that was not necessarily clear to the viewer, after all, the piece is titled Discovery. Kodak’s infrared film fulfilled this requirement perfectly, resulting in an ethereal image that can be interpreted in many ways.
