Beautiful infrared landscape photography shot in different locations but mostly in his native Germany.

ChristianKernIR1 ChristianKernIR2 ChristianKernIR3 ChristianKernIR4 ChristianKernIR5 ChristianKernIR6“I started my infrared photography after I saw an infrared lonely tree on deviantART. It was such a wonderful, magical image and I didn’t know what it was or how to create such amazing photography so I searched on Google and found some tutorials and tips. My first try was with a Hoya R72 filter in front of my Nikon D70. At this point I fell in love with infrared and changed the hot mirror filter from my second camera to a 700nm long pass filter. With a newly created Nikon D80IR, I shot tons of photos, developed them and finally sold my daylight camera. Since then, infrared is the only spectrum I shoot photos with. My photography is mostly themed on trees (I love trees) and dramatic dark skies.”

The Muse Of Monochrome

The Muse Of Monochrome
If black-and-white landscape photography was an earthquake, Yosemite would be the epicenter.

Yosemite is a giant magnet, and nature photographers are iron filings. We’re inexorably drawn to this small corner of the Sierra Nevada, and when we’re there, the place begs to be captured in black-and-white. In this rugged landscape, Ansel Adams found a muse that would speak to him for his entire life. Other legendary photographers like Eadweard Muybridge and Minor White explored the valley and created negative after negative. For this special Black & White issue of Outdoor Photographer, we thought it was the right time to revisit this most iconic and inspiring of national parks.
