Best of July 2014

Best Viewed on Full Screen

Welcome to our Best of Feature for July 2014. First, some news.

New Arrivals:

harrietsfriend :iconharrietsfriend: is now an Expert Member, and Galactico4ever :icongalactico4ever: is a new member.


There has been a record number of submissions to the Infrared Showcase Gallery this month - 228!! A steady number of 35 entries came into the Exposure Technique Gallery. Many Thanks to All members for their submissions - clearly extra-visible imaging is popular. The downside of all these submissions is that creating this selection has been difficult given the general quality of the work. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Calendar from vw1956 :iconvw1956:!!!

Volker has made and published a calendar of some of his outstanding infrared work. If you have not already bought a copy hurry up or they will all be gone. Infrared Calendar 2015 Front by vw1956 Infrared Calendar 2015 Back by vw1956

Infrared Work

I have divided the work up into themes this month and introduced a new general classification of Full Spectrum and Colour Edits. There have been a number of developments in the acquisition and treatment of extra-visible images, for example the use of a red Cokin filter and use of HSL variations reported by myself,…, heavyweight and controversial colour swapping to give so-called "toxic" effects from IRphotogirl, clever palette work from Galactico4ever and mIkeschwaRz, and enchanting full spectrum work from helios helios-spada.

Please also note the stunning work of our Member of the Month myINQI :iconmyinqi: featured at the end of the section.
