Mastering Infrared Photography
A Live Online Workshop
Saturday, February 24, 2024 at 12:00pm EST (New York time zone)

Learn all about your digital camera's hidden super-power!

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.

I will cover a variety of topics, including:

  • Origins of infrared photography
  • What is light?
  • What is infrared energy?
  • Solar radiation & infrared
  • Why shoot infrared?
  • When is the best time to shoot IR?
  • Camera sensors
  • Camera conversions
  • Shooting with non-converted cameras
  • The "hot mirror" filter
  • The different conversion options available
  • False color
  • Common IR filter frequencies
