“Nevada provided exceptional instruction on a wide array of topics, and her humor is such fun!” Kathy Hornsby, past Nevada Wier workshop participant

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 dreamy, surreal landscapes, but it’s also lovely 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 two-day intensive, Nevada introduces you to digital infrared photography. Using converted cameras and Adobe software, you 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.

Historic Santa Fe and the neighboring town of Nambé provide us with dramatic locations for our infrared explorations. By the end of this intensive you are a maven of invisible light and a maker of photographic poetry. In addition you come away with one print of your favorite image.
