Experimental Light

The images in the Experimental Light gallery were made with film and digital cameras that capture light in the invisible infrared band of the spectrum. IR photography has a look that is often quite different from that seen with the naked eye and for this reason is a highly creative tool that can alter our vision of the way things are. IR photography has been around a long time but the use of digital cameras, which can be modified for maximum sensitivity to IR wavelengths, has made the process of image capture much easier than when using IR with special films. In the past when I worked with IR film with large format cameras exposures were often several minutes in length, limiting considerably the type of images one may capture since a tripod is often necessary. With modified digital sensors exposures can be as fast or even faster than with visual light photography and hand held image capture is often practical. I have only been involved with digital IR for about two years and still consider my work experimental.

Piezography Info

Piezography Archival Pigment Prints

Piezography archival pigment prints are made with inkjet printers using pigment ink-sets. Piezography is a special ink-set that uses seven shades of black pigment ink to produce very high quality monochromatic photographs that will not fade. Archvial pigment prints are made on high quality photo rag papers designed for inkjet printers.  You can read more about this process on the Piezography Archival Print page.

All prints the galleries are available for purchase as Piezography prints.

*Print size is approximate and refers to actual image size.  The exact measurement of the print will depend on the aspect ratio of the capture format. All prints will be signed, with additional process and capture information on the back of the print, and will be shipped by registered mail in archival print boxes.


Terms and Conditions

Print purchase orders of archival pigment prints will be acknowledged by email within 2-3 business days will normally shipped within 2-3 weeks of the time of placement of the order.

There will be a flat rate charge of $35 for print sizes of 5X7” and 9X12”, and $50 for print sizes of 12X17”and 20X24” for US shipping.  For international shipping the flat rate charge will be $50 for the smaller sizes, and $75 for the larger sizes. All prints will be shipped by registered mail in archival print boxes.
