What can you expect?

This workshop is a tasting of what photographing with infrared light can mean for your visual language with a digital camera. Ariane provides some converted cameras with which you can investigate this. There are also filters available that allow you to approach this phenomenon with your own digital camera, although the options are somewhat more limited.

The workshop consists of two parts:

1 A demo with inspiration, explanation, photo examples and image editing.
2 A practical part in which you start exploring infrared photography yourself.

This workshop informs you about:

1 How do I take an IR photo? How do I set up the camera? What should I pay attention to?
2 Filters: what is the influence of the choice of a filter?
3 How do I edit the infrared photos I have taken so that I make maximum use of the hidden color palette?

The results will be shared by everyone afterwards (if everyone agrees). Photos taken with converted cameras will be sent to the members of the group.

If you want to participate, basic knowledge of camera technology is a requirement.

You are able to focus manually, you know how to set ISO, aperture and shutter speed, compensate exposure, and you know how to conjure up a histogram of the three channels on a captured image, and what a histogram tells you.

Bring: tripod, own digital camera, black cardboard (A4), lens: preferably prime lens, but zoom is also possible.
