2019 Coastal Delaware

Black-and-White Infrared Introductory Workshop

Join us April 12 and 13, 2019 for a one-and-one-half day workshop to explore the Delaware coast!

Based at the Hampton Inn just outside Lewes, DE, we will be shooting a variety of landscapes and seascapes.

This class is an introductory level class to learn basic capture and processing techniques for all nanometers of infrared. All types of cameras are welcome: converted IR cameras or non-converted cameras.

If you do not have an infrared circular lens filter for your non-converted camera, please email me to reserve a ‘loaner’ lens filter (ahead of class).

The class will begin at 1pm on Friday April 12 with lecture and slides of locations we will visit late Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. Saturday afternoon will be classroom time to learn a basic processing workflow. 

If you desire more time in the field and more advanced processing methods, please consider one of my B+W Infrared Intensive Workshops (3-1/2 days).

From using the right gear to capture and processing, this is a unique opportunity to learn how to create amazing black-and-white images.

At this workshop,

  • You will be placed in the best locations to maximize the infrared light under existing conditions.
  • You will receive individual help in the field to ensure a successful capture. Every day there will be hands-on experience in the classroom for processing your images while learning how to manage workflow.
  • Finally, you will have the opportunity to use a “loaner” external lens filter to make infrared images at no charge to you! 720nm and 850nm infrared Kolari Vision external lens filters for non-infrared cameras will be available if you do not have your own.
