Tree Study in Infrared Lake District Paul Gallagher aspect2i

Whilst black and white pho­tog­ra­phy is about entic­ing the view­er into see­ing the world about them in an entire­ly dif­fer­ent way, infrared pho­tog­ra­phy takes that jour­ney a lit­tle fur­ther still. When we see the world in black and white, we can to some degree imag­ine the tones the colours would pro­duce, but the tones in infrared would be of even more of a devi­a­tion from reality.

Woodland Study in Infrared Lancashire Paul Gallagher aspect2i

Fine art black and white infrared is not about cam­era equip­ment or a rigid way of pro­cess­ing image files, but an invi­ta­tion to enter anoth­er world of see­ing using light that even the naked human eye can­not see. It is about evok­ing emo­tion in the view­er through the craft­ing of beau­ti­ful sub­tle tones that will unveil this hid­den side to the world in which we live. 

This work­shop is about chang­ing your mind on how you see the world enabling you to see beau­ty in infrared tones of grey and show­ing you ways to express your vision of black and white infrared. Even if you have been explor­ing black and white infrared before, we want you to delve deep­er into the soul of the pho­tog­ra­ph­er and free up new ways of mak­ing cre­ative images using this unique medi­um. It is this expres­sion of vision and cre­ativ­i­ty that we will explore dur­ing our time together.

We will have image reviews and we want you to express your­self in any way you choose and share this with the view­er. We will talk about indi­vid­u­al­i­ty and the way you want your work to look, and it is these skills that we will har­ness to enable you to become and an infrared artist.

Paul Gal­lagher and Michael Pilk­ing­ton will be with you through­out this wok­shop to encour­age and work side by side on your infrared vision, image inter­pre­ta­tion and print mak­ing. This will not be a work­shop that will see the group dash­ing about from one loca­tion to anoth­er, but a work­shop where tak­ing your time to con­tem­plate what you are pho­tograph­ing and con­sid­er how you would want the fin­ished image to look and feel’ like is imperative.

For this work­shop we have decid­ed to ded­i­cate our time out in the peace­ful sur­round­ings of the York­shire Dales with its gen­tle rolling coun­try­side, lime­stone pave­ments and wood­lands. Dur­ing the work­shop you will relax in the high­est qual­i­ty accom­mo­da­tion with fine food.

Each pho­tog­ra­ph­er will pro­duce a unique port­fo­lio of three A3+ prints on a paper of their choice which will be pre­sent­ed in a fine art port­fo­lio box.
