Infrared photography is a beautiful way for photographers to reach further into the art of the image. It can transform an ordinary composition into one with surreal and ethereal qualities.
During this intensive and fun 5-day workshop, you will learn both the technical as well as the magical and creative aspects of infrared photography. With Christine’s and Doug’s guidance, you will learn to pre-visualize how infrared light affects the natural world especially concerning the sky, foliage, people, clothing and buildings. You will discover a new way of seeing and capturing the world!
They will help you master the concepts of infrared and also lead you through a more creative and experimental journey to unique and mystical imagery. In Condon, Montana, Christine and Doug will take participants on outdoor field sessions to photograph the landscape, portraits and and man-made subjects. Time will also be spent examining and experimenting with specialized infrared post processing methods so you can develop a personal workflow. If you prefer film and the darkroom, as co-instructors, one will work with you in the darkroom while the other helps with digital workflow. You will also be able to combine the two by either scanning your negatives to use in a digital workflow or create a digital negative to use in the darkroom or for an alternative printing process.
Our Perfect Students consist of beginners to advanced infrared photographers. With two seasoned infrared photographers as your instructors, all levels will benefit from this workshop, from analog to digital. They will take care of you! Please have working knowledge of your camera as well as the basics of digital workflow. (or darkroom)
If you wish to learn digital infrared, then a converted digital camera is required. We recommend both www.kolarivision.com and www.lifepixels.com
Please bring a laptop. If you choose to work in the darkroom, the Photographer’s Formulary store will have supplies/chemicals for you.
