Infrared Photography




Digital infrared photography, a brand of artistic photography that focuses on creating unique images derived from the near infrared spectrum of radiation that is not visible to humans.

The workshop explains infrared photography from the fundamentals to actual practice, making it possible to begin a wonderful journey with a branch of photography that was once only available to the few.

Details of the workshop:

9 AM – 12 PM: Meet in Lincoln Park Area to learn the fundamentals of infrared and begin to understand compositions for infrared photography

12 PM – 1:30 PM: Lunch on your own.

1:30 PM – 5:00 PM: Processing images for infrared and then printing your images on a selection of Hahnemühle Paper.

Additional information that you will be given:

  • Cameras for infrared photography
  • Resources and companies for camera conversions, including discounts on conversions.

You need to have completed Photo II and have an understanding of basic Adobe Camera Raw (Lightroom) and Photoshop (layers, masks & filters) or have comparable experience and approval from the instructor.

Equipment Requirements

If you currently own an IR converted camera, please bring it.  If you do not, a camera is NOT required, we will have two (3) IR Cameras that you will be able to use during the morning.

If you would like to purchase an inexpensive IR Camera starter kit (camera and 3 filters), our friends at Kolari Vision is offering the following converted digital camera for a very reasonable price. 

Canon ELPH 180 Full Spectrum Conversion

Additionally, if you would like to convert a camera that you currently own to IR, Isaak Szabo is offering our students a 10% discount.  Please contact us for more information regarding camera conversion.

    I had a great time in Chicago, participating in the IR workshop. Nenad provided comprehensive information about IR and answered all of my questions. The processing portion at the school was also good. The classroom and printer set up was nice. It was nice to go home with a couple prints on paper that was new to me. The off street parking was an extra bonus. Thanks!
