Infrared Workshops at the Meadows Start This Month

The first infrared Workshop will be held on June 25 at McCabe Meadows in Parker, Colorado. You don’t need an IR-converted camera to attend.


It’s a two-hour hands-on workshop on making digital infrared images with your own cameras. We’ll kick off with a brief discussion of capture options, then we’ll walk around the park and make some IR photographs with your cameras. Each participant will be able to shoot using different kinds of filters—that I will lend you for the workshop—for making infrared images with your own camera. Since really slow shutter speeds will result from using these filters, you must bring a tripod. No tripod; no pictures.


The top image was made last summer; the one just below was made just a few days ago. Interestingly, on Sunday the trees were not fully leafed out and when viewed with visible light have a completely less full appearance than when photographed on IR.

During the workshop, I’ll  demonstrate a comparison of images using filters with those made using a IR-converted. The fee is $50 that is payable the day of the workshop. Cash or check. Workshop is limited to a maximum and minimum of three participants. To reserve a space, click the Contact page and provide your name and e-mail address.

If this doesn’t fit your schedule there will be one or two workshops in July. Check this blog for details.

Tip: The cameras that I used to make the above images  were converted for infrared capture by LifePixel. Their normal turnaround time for converting your camera is “usually 10 business days or less” from when they receive the camera but “may occasionally take longer during periods of high volume.” Priority Processing turnaround time is usually seven business days or less from when they receive your camera. By using the coupon code “joefarace50” you get $50 off Priority Processing, so you can save time and money.
