Workshop “Basics of infrared photography”


Infrared photography is photography with invisible light – not visible to the human eye. This type of photography conveys a new and sometimes strange, almost mystical view of the world around us. With the right knowledge and a little patience, you can create almost artistic photographs.

You have heard or read about converted or modified cameras that can be used to take pictures in the infrared range. Or you still know the Aerochrome look from analog films and have always wondered whether this is also possible digitally.
So if you would like to try your hand at infrared or full spectrum photography, this workshop offers you the opportunity to gain a first insight into this special type of photography.
