Dottie was great, and very knowledgeable about subject! The workshop was the perfect pace, and an excellent blend of field and lab. Robert Dorzback, former workshop participant

While the traditional photographic image captures reflected light, infrared (IR) photography captures invisible light—infrared radiation, to be exact. There are many practical applications for IR photography, including criminology, photomicrography, and celestial photography. IR images are otherworldly, surreal, and dream-like, offering never-ending surprises, and this four-day workshop focuses on the creative aspects that have intrigued and fascinated photographers for decades. If you are searching for a new creative outlet, IR is an effective vehicle for expanding the range of your artistic vision.

Working with digital point-and-shoot cameras or digital SLRs, we take a journey into the technical and aesthetic aspects of the magical world of digital infrared photography, learning to see in IR and discovering the best ways of recording the IR spectrum. Daily field sessions in the stunning New Mexico light provide myriad opportunities for photographing landscapes, architecture, people, and animals.

Back in the classroom, Dottie demonstrates techniques for enhancing and adjusting IR images with Adobe Photoshop and NIK Software. Through critiques we review the technical aspects and creative potential of your images. In addition, Dottie also examines color IR and high dynamic range (HDR) photography, as well as the creation of panoramas. You depart with the knowledge and tools to create and capture the imagery of your dreams.
