Obviously infrared imaging is not for people photography. Dead eyes. Super high contrast. Blown out highlights. Definitely not for people… Unless you are doing something artsy with the scene being most important and people are a relatively small element in the overall image OR you are at a Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead) Celebration.
And, I just happened to attend one at Tlaquepaque in Sedona on Saturday and found a few people in costume and face paint to pose for me.
Had a lovely ‘Day of the Dead’ model join me for a quick photo session in a back lit alcove.
Paper mache Caterina on the fountain. Seems like it was a day for brides as I worked…
If you are unfamiliar with the Day of the Dead celebration it is a Mexican Holiday when families get together and morn and celebrate the passing of loved ones. The celebration is to help those who have passed to move on in their journey beyond.

Proper tool for the job. I think infrared works for this situation. How about you??
