Infrared photography is very different than visible-light photography. In this workshop, you will learn what infrared energy is, and how to take IR images with either a converted camera or a non-converted camera (yes, you can photograph infrared without having to do a conversion!). If you choose to convert a camera, or purchase an already converted camera, I'll help you decide what kind of IR conversion is best for you.
This is a very comprehensive workshop where you will learn everything you need to know. You will be able to ask questions and participate in this Zoom meeting. You'll leave with a very comfortable understanding of infrared photography.
Participants are provided with a copy of the PowerPoint slides and the presentation will be recorded. Attendees are provided with a private link of the recording to review as often as they like.

- Origins of infrared photography
