PhotoBert's Infrared Phography - Seeing the World in a Whole New Light

Learn everything there is to know about Infrared Photography

Infrared photography opens up a whole new realm of photography. Infrared photography is very different than visible-light photography. In this workshop, you will learn what infrared energy is, and how to take IR images with either a converted camera or a non-converted camera (yes, you can photograph infrared with your current digital camera without having to do a conversion!).

This is a very comprehensive workshop where you will learn everything you need to know. You will be able to ask questions and participate in this Zoom meeting.

Take your photography to another level. Infrared photography will bring out the creative "you".

Who is this for? This workshop is for anyone who wants to learn more about what infrared is all about and learn how to shoot Infrared images.
Why attend? You will learn everything you need to know about infrared energy, camera conversions, IR shooting, IR filters and IR post-processing.

What do people think about our workshops?

Here's a sample of the type of email we received from our participants:

"Among a"Among all the pros from whom I've tried to learn, you were all alone as the very best"

"Thanks again for a wonderful trip, I learned a lot from you and really enjoyed your insight."

"I don't know when I've learned so much and had such an enjoyable and satisfying experience."

"Many thanks again for a great workshop. " />
"I learned so much on that trip to Joshua Tree. Thank you for all that great advice."

"Thanks again for providing such terrific photographic opportunities as well as the invaluable training."

"Fantastic workshop - I can't believe what I didn't know!"

"Thanks for a terrific workshop and the various materials you gave us.  Most of all, thank you for teaching -- by example, not in a [boring] way -- thinking "outside the box" regarding subject matter, composition and use of light.  A workshop should be fun.  Yours got an A+ there.  A workshop should leave a participant with comfort with at least one "how to" that was not comfortable before.  Another A+, and this one for multiple techniques and approaches."
