hi olli,
infrared photography sounds very interesting. how may i interpret the grayscale palette, dark=cold and bright=hot ?

Oh, this has nothing to do with thermal imaging. The correct term for "infrared photography" is actually "near infrared photography". 700 to 900 nanometer wavelentghs from what I read. So the range ends where thermal starts.

seen some portrait-fotos made by a friend of mine with this technique. it looks very cool. maybe you can try to make some headshots with infrared - photography.

congratulation to your photo on fotocommunity. was very interesting to read the comments. the people have seen a lot of details, that i didn't ....

Thanks!
Is he using a digital camera?

i thought, but she used a analog camera. for a while, i asked her if she could make some portraits of me with this technique. if so, i will send it to you (sure, only if its on your interest ;)).

but i ask me: is it more difficult to make infrared- photography with digital cameras? if it is, why? can you explain?

On the post previous to this one I tried to explain it a little. To do infrared with modern digital cameras you need to work with very long exposures due to an internal filter that filters out (near) infrared wavelengths. If I got this right, you don't have that with analog cameras. You just get an infrared film and you are ready to go. Sure, I wanna see what you got!
