Exploring Infrared Photography

During this one-day workshop we will show you how to understand what looks good in infrared and what compositions will work effectively. It is often assumed that for infrared photographs to work successfully you must be out in the field on a day when the sun is high in the sky and there are green leaves on the trees. This does make very eye-catching photographs, but less commonly known is how wonderfully infrared works on overcast days and even in the winter where you get a beautiful display of tones.

Infrared pho­tog­ra­phy has expe­ri­enced a renais­sance in recent years and has become a pop­u­lar genre in land­scape pho­tog­ra­phy. Infrared pho­tog­ra­phy begins with a cam­era that has been con­vert­ed so that it can see’ and record infrared light. Mod­ern dig­i­tal cam­eras have a fil­ter that cuts out infrared light so that we cap­ture all of the colours of the vis­i­ble spec­trum. When a cam­era is con­vert­ed for infrared pho­tog­ra­phy, this fil­ter is removed and is replaced with a fil­ter that cuts out most of the vis­i­ble spec­trum, leav­ing a cam­era that lit­er­al­ly sees what our eyes cannot!

You will be shown how to expose for infrared and how the camera can perform very effectively often without the need for any filters at all.

This work­shop will take you into wood­land and you will also work in the open land­scape and will receive plen­ty of hands on, one to one tuition from your leader who is an expert in this type of pho­tog­ra­phy. The day will con­clude with an image review where you will share what you have tak­en and you will be offered fur­ther tips on how to refine what you have learned on the day. Also as part of the image review we will show you the basic tech­niques of how to con­vert your infrared cam­era raw files into great black and white images with that ethe­re­al feel’.

Clear­ly, many peo­ple who want to try infrared for the first time many not have a cam­era that has been con­vert­ed to infrared. We at aspects of expres­sion have a lim­it­ed num­ber of infrared con­vert­ed cam­eras that can be bor­rowed for this one day pho­tog­ra­phy workshop.

Infrared is also superb when used for close-up photography and stormy skies on what we would often call a bad day to be out!
