A few Infra red photos I have done over the past ten years

11-05-2017

As i am very busy at the moment i thought id take the opportunity to show a small collection on Infrared photos i’v taken over the years.for those of you who don’t know about infra red it is the invisible light at the red end of the spectrum beyond visible light

In infrared photography, the  image sensor used is sensitive to infrared light. The part of the spectrum used is referred to as near-infrared to distinguish it from far-infrared, which is the domain of thermal imaging. Wavelengths used for photography range from about 700 nm to about 900 nm.

To take photos in infra red you need either to convert your camera to infra red or to put an infra red filter on the front of your camera and with a tripod use very long exposures,

I started off with an Olympus C4000z with the tripod and long exposures using a 720nm filter but soon moved on to a Sigma SD10 which i converted myself,before having an Olympus E-pl1 converted professionally,I convert my IR photos to Black and white as I prefer the effect

so here they are.

A Trip to Format Festival Derby

13-04-2017

A uni trip to the International photographic festival at Derby.

First time i have ever been to Derby,a bit of a culture shock  😀 right opposite our first port of call “The Quad gallery” http://www.derbyquad.co.uk/whats-on/exhibitions-current.aspx  was a great big shocking pink tent within which the “Lady boys of Bangkok” show was performing as part of its touring season http://www.ladyboysofbangkok.co.uk/ not what i expected in a quiet backwater town,which Derby I have now found out is NOT !

The festival is located all over Derby ,and i do mean ALL over Derby lots of little gallery’s and lots of improvised gallery’s in old derelict or Semi derelict buildings the theme is Habitat

“FORMAT17 24 MARCH – 23 APRIL 2017

The 2017 edition of FORMAT will explore the theme of HABITAT through varied narratives and imagery that document the worlds around us. We will share the experiences and stories that coalesce as we negotiate our complex existence, including the flora, fauna, landscapes and the lives within.”                                                                          http://www.formatfestival.com/

Interesting and very diverse works,and interesting and diverse places to see them.              Here are a few examples from the Exhibition
