A software engineer by trade, Silvana began her fascination with photography as small child, taking her father’s camera as often as she could, to peer through the view finder at the rectangular world she chose to isolate for view. When she was 14, her father gave her a second hand fully manual SLR which unlocked the realm of controlling the light of an instant in time. The early fascination turned into a lifelong love. Infrared film photography was often part of this journey of controlling light and extending the view beyond what our eyes could perceive.
Since converting her Nikon D80 to infrared at 590nm (super color IR), it fully resumed the past quest of capturing a different view of the world via infrared.
When she’s not designing software, Silvana provides photography services around New England as well as infrared and normal photography fine art.
