Now that I have your attention, let me tell you about the image that you're looking at.
Some months ago Adventures in Photography sponsored a field trip to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. One of the participants posted the above image. I was so taken with the image that I contacted the photographer that produced this image and asked him to present a workshop on what he did and how he did it.
He (Miguel Mongui) said yes.
I'm delighted to be able to offer everyone a chance to attend a workshop on Infrared Photography.
This presentation will teach you everything you need to know to take infrared images with your existing camera equipment.
Miguel Mongui, our presenter will share his knowledge and techniques on March 21st, 2014, at the VFW in Saddle Brook, NJ. located at 44 Market Street, Saddle Brook, NJ 07663
Here's an outline of what you can expect:
This seminar would focus on Infrared photography done with infrared filters. This is the cheaper way to do it since converting a camera will be expensive and permanently, meaning that you will not be able to take regular pictures with your camera anymore.
The seminar will be divided in 4 parts:
Infrared Photography Introduction
Equipment, Camera options (how to check if your camera can capture IR light), Filters, Tripod, Lenses (Issues), Remote release, What and when to shoot.
2) SETTING UP THE CAMERA
We will review camera settings for IR such as white balance, Aperture, ISO, Shutter speed, focusing & stabilization
3) PRE/PROCESSING THE IMAGES
White balance calibration (before post production)
How to download DNG profile editor from adobe labs
Converting the image to DNG
Exporting the camera profile
4) PROCESSING IN LIGHTROOM / CAMERA RAW (full demonstration) and
POST PRODUCTION IN PHOTOSHOP (full demonstration)
