Dear friends, dear members and dear watchers
In this journal the main focus will be our folder called non-real by light
As humans can be described as visual animals, the importance of light is seen. Without light we would have great problems in life. Also we couldn't take pictures and we couldn't see the art which is shared here at dA. Enough reasons to have a seperate folder for this non-real aspect.
Huge thanks to ~uosiek1
who had initialised to have a seperate folder for light.
The main focus of the light folder is the presence, the absence and the effects of light, like reflections or shadows.
At this point I want to call your attention to our brand new affiliate
Great to point to them, because they are focused on all the aspects of the folder we want introduce today.
Now We will give you a more detailed idea what could be ment with non-real by light by showing different pictures from non-real
and additionally with a special collection from our wonderful affiliate
, which will also show the theme non-real by light with the eyes of IR.
Now, please enjoy the more or less lightness of non-real Light can be:
- natural light
- artificial lightLight can be:
- absentLight can draw while using:
- patterns of objects The shadow of light can:
- tell a story
- also be a reflection
- found in silhouettesThe reflective effect of light can:
- be stunning
- open new views Light can become nearly tangible: Light let us enjoying the colors Also light can show us the loneliness and sadness or make us fear
David has taken also taken a tour via
and has selected from his group pictures which showing also the aspect of non-real by light.
Please enjoy this wonderful collection especially the individual comments and explanations to the pictures.
Classic infrared from brianwolfe with characteristics of black sky, white foliage - showing slight variations of tone.
Following feigenfrucht's general classification - this image from helios-spada shows the treatment of bright light using techniques to change the sky to blue, but keeping the foliage white.
But infrared can be treated as dark as well as light with this example from 720nm using the dark, monochrome palette to create mood and tension.
Monochrome or blue/red channel swaps are common ways to display infrared images, but other even more colourful techniques exist as in this example from Okavanga.
Reflections work well in infrared imaging, as seen here, as the water surface is often "black" from lack of reflection of any IR light.
One subject that often gives strange light/colour in infrared is clothes as seen in this shot where the lady and gent are dressed in black, at least according to visible light.
No set of infrared images concerning light would be complete without a classic treatment from infrared film such as this from UnderFloorboardWorld - these reds and blues being the feature of IR film.
Finally, the subtlety of infrared light can be appreciated in this study of a daffodil by MIkeschwaRz - the texture and tonal variations that we know to be there are seen, but the colour has all but vanished.
We hope you enjoy our idea of collaboration and we wish you a wonderful time
Your Erdtrud and your David
