Best of September 2014

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 30, 2014, 3:29 AM

The Infrared-Club (Extra-Visible Imaging) proudly presents the best images for September 2014.

Infrared Gradients Project

Jenny C0MPASSION :iconc0mpassion: is putting together an infrared gradients package for use in fractal imaging. The project is nearing completion.The basic idea is to create a gradient file from an infrared image, and then use that as a source for gradients in such software s UltraFractal and Apophysis. Here is her note on the matter.

"I am not a photographer, but a creator of fractal images. I find beautiful and cool colors everywhere, but some of the most vivid and striking are in the Infra-red photos.

I would like to see if any of your photographer's would be willing to let me use their colors from their photos for an Infra red Gradient Package. Each artist and the photo would receive credit when a fractal using their art is they would again receive recognition when the Gradient Package would be released. It often takes me about 6 months to put a package together.

I would offer this package as Premium Downloadable Content to help fund incentives and contests I run through the fractal group and ones I run personally. When I say nominal fee....I mean like 30 points per packet or less.

I do not alter a photograph in any way....I just "lift" the colors from the photo and then apply it to the fractal. Some times the outcome is gorgeous beautiful!!"

If anyone does not want their infrared work used in this way, please let Jenny or me know.

Best Infrared Images September 2014

As usual a great deal of work has gone into the selection and presentation of these images. We have had about 150 submissions this month, including some experimental and reference shots, and excellent tutorials from Mike mIkeschwaRz:iconmikeschwarz: on the glow effect in infrared photography and his infrared-visible comparison shots.  There is also another excellent tutorial from myINQI :iconmyinqi: about post-processing infrared work.  These tutorials can be found in the main Infrared Showcase gallery, and are absolute must reads for serious infrared photographers.

A special mention for Volkervw1956 :iconvw1956: whose set of infrared photographs of cars attracted our attention, and then some - see Horsepower section below.

Exposure Techniques

While we have not had that many submissions to this gallery this month, what has been posted is generally of very high quality and shows the versatility of exposure methods.

We should like to give a special mention to The-Egg :iconthe-egg: for some outstanding HDR work, three examples of which are featured below.

Best wishes to all members.
