Infrared Photography by Nir Arieli

 

Award winning photographer Nir Arieli takes amazing pictures of men. Nir is originally from Israel, but now works from New York. This set of photos is infrared, up close portraits. While color infrared pictures can often be jarring, black and white infrared looks very close to regular black and white photos – there are subtle differences that make details in the photos pop out.  There is an excellent description of infrared photography HERE.Check out more of Nir Ariel’s excellent work on his Tumblr and on his Website.

Antonio Díaz is a Spanish fine art photographer. His still life photographs are remarkable – it takes a moment to realize they are not paintings. The lighting, the composition, the colors – the perfection of it makes them exist out of time like a still life painting.  See more of Antonio Díaz’s work HERE and HERE.
