With infrared photography, it’s important to learn the rules so you can go out and break them, and over five comprehensive days, renowned IR specialist Laurie Klein shows you how to do just that. Under her guidance, participants train their eyes to pre-visualize the qualities of IR: how it records heat and how it interprets the visible spectrum, especially regarding foliage, vegetation, people, clothing, buildings, and lighting situations.
In daily outdoor visits to the field, we photograph nature, landscapes, structures, and models while exploring the art of emotive storytelling. On the more technical side, we discuss white balance and the camera settings necessary for strong capture. Shelley Vandegrift, Laurie’s longtime collaborator, provides technical information for capture as well as helping each student develop a personalized workflow incorporating numerous post-production techniques.
Each day we engage in group critiques as well as one-on-one time with Laurie, who facilitates your process of finding and strengthening your own infrared visual voice. Throughout, each participant develops a personalized workflow and gets comfortable utilizing different post-production methods. At the end of the week, we print selected IR images produced during the workshop our images in the Workshops state-of-the-art digital lab.
This workshop is open to those just entering the world of infrared as well as anyone wishing to up their game and create more dramatic IR photographs. Please bring a converted IR camera.
Come with an open, curious mind, ready to learn the secrets of great infrared photography, and leave with a new set of skills for making unforgettable images!
