How does photon energy change with increasing frequency?

Consider the following equation:

#E = hf#

Where #E# is photon energy, #h# is Planck's constant, and #f# is frequency. As you can see, with increasing frequency, you should get an increasing energy.

This makes sense, as wavelengths with greater frequencies carry greater amounts of energy (ex. consider why gamma rays - that have a really high frequency - can be dangerous).

Hope that helps :)
