This workshop will be packed with Power Point and instruction on composition and enhancing our creative and perceptual vision. Theresa will do many demos on how to create an image, not just take one, crossing the boundaries of photography and painting to create unique artistic images for your vision and your insights.
From Theresa: "I work with a full-spectrum converted camera (an Olympus EM5 Mark II ), which allows me to photograph in full color as well as using the various IR filters: 720nm, 830nm, 590nm and 665nm for the effect I wish to capture. I will explain and show how the different IR captures are accessible with one camera with this set up. I will also have two extra IR converted cameras for students to share and try out during the workshop ...one with an 830nm filter (dramatic BW) and one with the 720nm filter (standard).
You will need:
- Converted Infrared Camera (either Full-Spectrum or one with a chosen IR filter inside)
- Laptop (I will send a list of the software needed at a later date)
