The Art of Infrared Photography

by Joseph Paduano

Joseph Paduano is a professional instructor, author, and photographer.  Working in b&w and color infrared film, Joseph favors old homes, beach scenes, landscapes, and nudes as subjects. The interplay of sunlight and shadow is characteristic of his work, evoking a soft dreamlike feeling; his subject matter and use of warm tone photographic paper creates the impression of an earlier time, when the art form was in its infancy.

He also teaches workshops on infrared photography for the New England School of Photographic Arts in Connecticut, the Abington Art Center in Pennsylvania, and for The Country Photography Workshops of New Jersey.
