Infrared photography is a way of creating images using the invisible infrared light that strikes your subject. Long-time infrared experimenter Nevada Wier calls it “invisible poetry,” because in the process of studying this technique, you move beyond your usual methods of photographing and discover a new way of seeing the world. Infrared is not only ideal for creating unusual, surreal landscapes, but it’s also startling for portrait and still life photography.

Infrared photography in the digital age is light years ahead of its film counterpart. Two factors have led to this unique niche becoming more accessible: first, the use of digital cameras that have been converted to render infrared light and, second, new digital workflow protocols.

In this weekend workshop, Nevada introduces you to digital infrared photography. Using converted cameras and Adobe software, you will learn the ins and outs of photographing and processing your images. After getting comfortable with the technique, you move into the creative and experimental side of making images with the infrared spectrum.

By the end of this short workshop you are a maven of invisible light and a maker of photographic poetry!

A Note from Nevada: A converted digital camera is required for this workshop. (I recommend www.lifepixel.com) Please send a lens with the camera for calibrating the focal plane or convert your camera to focus using the LCD screen. The brand of camera is not important; you can use an older digital camera, sitting forlorn in your closet, which has been replaced by a newer model, or you can use a micro four-thirds camera. I recommend the Standard Conversion but if you prefer a different conversion that is your choice.

Santa Fe Workshops

September 15 - 19, 2014

A lively blend of lectures, discussions, and outdoor assignments, this workshop with Nevada Wier tackles the challenges of photographing with creative intent while on the move with a digital camera. We discuss equipment and digital concerns in different travel and outdoor environments, ways to approach and photograph people, sensitivity to cross-cultural issues in foreign countries, and tips, both theoretical and practical, on using natural light as well as fill-flash. The week includes group and individual critiques, personal assignments, and great fun in the field.

The emphasis is on elevating your creative vision and expanding your photographic technique, all while remaining fleet-footed and agile. The historic town of Santa Fe and its environs, provide the ideal environment for the travel photographer—no passport required! Consistently named one of the top ten travel destinations in the world by Conde Nast Traveler magazine, Santa Fe offers the opportunity to photograph a diversely cultural community and a broad spectrum of natural environment. We also photograph at the New Mexico State Fair in Albuquerque. These inspiring locales are the perfect, dramatic locations backdrops for our photographic adventures on the move.
