For years people asked if they could shoot with me. Now you can join me through a series of hands-on workshops of studio and infrared photography where you’ll see how I work and the cameras and lenses I use. You’ll learn how to use the techniques I’ve written about in magazines and books. During these informal but hands-on sessions you’ll get to ask questions and shoot photographs for your portfolio, providing a fully interactive experience
Infrared at the Lake. May, 2015. At Bingham Lake in Parker, Colorado. A 90-minute hand-on workshop on making digital infrared images using your own cameras. We’ll kick off with a brief discussion about IR capture options, then we’ll walk around the lake and make IR photographs. You’ll get to see and use the different kinds of filters to make infrared images using your own camera. I’ll also demonstrate a comparison of images made using a IR-converted. Please bring your camera—SLR or mirrorless— and a tripod because some of the filters will produce shutter speed that are quite slow. $75 paid via PayPal. Check this page for specific Saturday dates as well as other Digital Infrared workshops, including Infrared at the Farm (June, 2015,) at the Hidden Valley Open Space and Infrared in the Park (July, 2015) in Parker, Colorado.
