Infrared Photography; our November Learn Shop


As photographers, one of the foundational factors in “Capturing the Moment” is the exposure triangle. But that is based on the light we CAN see. For the November Learn Shop, SPS members John Wiltshire and Pete Connally will present capturing images with INFRARED light that we “Cannot See”.

Infrared photography is a look into the invisible world. The human eye can see wavelengths from about 400nm-700nm (from purple to red); infrared is the light beyond 700nm. IR photography can be done with either infrared film, or a digital camera, and typically involves near infrared light in the 700nm to 1200nm range. Infrared photography produces some very distinct effects which make them aesthetically pleasing or high contrast B W photographs.

In their presentation on Infrared Photography John and Pete will discuss:
· What is Infrared Photography
· Common uses of Infrared Photography
· How Infrared Photography is different than regular photography?
· How to get started

They will also demonstrate Infrared Photography Workflow


SPS Monthly Meetings (first Friday of each month) are for its members and guests. While competition entries at these monthly meetings are restricted to currently paid-up members, we ALWAYS welcome visitors interested in photography to attend. The Learnshops (fourth Tuesday of each month) are intended for members, but again, we welcome visitors. If you attend regularly, we ask that you help support the club (which pays for the rental of the facilities, supplies, and equipment) by becoming a member!!!
