Melancholia is a time-lapse shortfilm shot in Iceland during the summer solstice of 2013, using modified infrared Sony DSLR camera.
During 12 days I explored and photographed both the South Coast and the Snæfellsnes peninsula, looking for the best scenes to represent in infrared.
Direct sunlight, green grass and blue skies are a must in infrared photography, and are even better if combined, something not easy to find in Iceland.
I want to thank Quique Touriño for helping me in the hard process of developing the infrared pictures.
Shot with Sony A65 + Zeiss 16-35mm + Sony 70-200mm
