Featured IR Photographer Showcase - Andrea Lohmann

Andrea's stunning IR work gives us a look at various sites in and around her home in Pittsburgh, PA. We also get a wonderful tour of many exotic locales which she has documented in IR on her many vacation and holiday cruises. Andrea is commonly known far and wide on the major photography based forums as "Boogie". So when you run across her clown avatar and her handle, make sure you give her a shout. Also, when you get to her Gallery site, be sure to peruse Infrared #2, a second gallery of images in Infrared. Welcome Andrea!

Bio: Hi everyone. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is my home and offers me many opportunities for both color and Infrared photography. My city offers ethnic neighborhoods, rivers, bridges, and a beautiful countryside that leads to the mountains. I started my photography quest in my early twenties after my husband said I needed to throw away the instamatic cameras. And so it began. A few Canon slr's, a darkroom, and the wish to try IR with film which never transpired.

Then one year my brother let me borrow his Sony FD81 digital camera for my vacation and that started me on the road to digital and I've never looked back. I sold everything related to film and from that day forward I've had a ball.

My current color camera equipment includes a Canon 20D and a Canon XTi. For Infrared I have the following cameras which have been converted to IR: Sony P200, Sony N2, a Canon XTi and of course my trusty Sony F717 which is my baby and got me started on my IR fanatic craze in the first place.

So now I'm retired and enjoying the freedom of going wherever I want whenever I want to satisfy my photography addiction. We like to cruise the Caribbean once a year which is the best place for IR. The palm trees, water and bright sun are perfect for IR.

I do have one confession to make...I am an IRaholic and I hope you enjoy what I see in Infrared.

As a friend and former co-worker of Andrea's, I have seen much of her work through the years and have always admired her wonderful photos and originality. After viewing her collections on this website it proves she just keeps getting better and better now that she has the freedom to devote so much of her time to her much loved hobby of capturing whatever she sees on film.
