    Course Description

    Infrared Photography

    Landscape photography is the type of photography that draws people to it. The allure of magically transporting your viewers to that magical place and letting them feel what you felt as you click the shutter. That ability is what is so appealing to Landscape photography.

    Landscape Photographers needed big and awfully expensive cameras and extra heavy tripod. Today our smart phone is capable of great capture.

    To stand out from the crowd I use IR to capture my Landscape images. You still need to consider the other elements in a photograph such as composition, lighting, and storytelling to take it from snapshot to gallery.

    We will discuss briefly about what is IR, from definition to history to application. Next, we will cover how I use it for my BW Landscape. We will go over the different nm, and the expected results of each to help your creative process.

    Finally, we will go over the Post Processing. We will discuss step by step the different software and particular use for each to make your stunning breath-taking masterpiece.

    Come join us for this magical ride!

    Bring your Camera and laptop if you like to follow along.

    Bio:

    Since an early age, I was fascinated by The Arts. I looked at my uncle in amazement as he played with his enormously huge and shiny new camera. It had all the bells and whistles. It was then that I knew I wanted to be a photographer.

    While in High School, my art teacher inspired my creativity and did not allow me to settle for the ordinary and encouraged me to get out of my comfort zone, so I could be more innovative. I went on to drawing, painting and making clay sculptures that were exhibited in a year-end art display. She taught me patience and perseverance. In college I was exposed to African Art which led me to explore and immerse myself in everything it had to offer. This had a profound lifelong influence on my work.

    I am a passionate photographic artist, with an Associate Degree in Liberal Arts. I currently an active member on the Board of The Professional Photographers of Massachusetts (PPAM), currently serving as President. I hold a Craftsman, and a certification degree, CR Photog, CPP, by PPA. I have the honor of serving as PPA Council member and one of the Liaison of the CPP program.
