Hi, I’m Christina Sautter. Although I am a corporate law professor by profession, my true passion lies in photography. I have always had a point and shoot camera but it wasn’t until 2015 that I purchased my first DSLR. A year or so later, I discovered monochrome infrared photography and was immediately drawn to the ethereal, film-like, and often haunting quality of the images. The seemingly magical transformation of green vegetation and vivid blue skies to bright white and dark black was irresistible. At the end of 2015, I had LifePixel convert a Nikon D200 but I didn’t actually start shooting with it until about six months later. I was immediately hooked by the challenges of obtaining a good shot in camera and the artistic, post-processing thereafter.
Since getting drawn into infrared, I have been combining that enthusiasm with my other great passions – travel and discovery. While traveling, I always experiment with different subjects in infrared – from Mayan ruins to tropical beaches to African wildlife. Closer to home, I have been developing a series of photos based on the striking architecture of New Orleans. The gallery I have selected for you reflects all of these subjects.
I’m excited to continue my quest for new subjects and to hone my infrared skills. I hope that you can join me on my infrared travels by following me at one of the links below.
