Infrared Photography

Includes Multiple Live Events. The next is on 07/08/2024 at 1:00 PM (EDT)

Online, July 8, 15, 29, 2024, at 1:00-3:00pm ET
Instructor: Yosi Pozeilov
Coordinator: Cristiana Ginatta
Registration fee: $80 AIC members, $96 non-members (a limited number of free registrations are available for those who need it)

This workshop is designed to present the fundamentals of infrared imaging. The first two sessions will cover terminology, equipment, techniques, applications, and processing. The third session will include a review of practice images with additional time for questions and discussion.

Although this workshop is designed to cover knowledge from beginner to a more advanced level, to fully benefit from the information imparted, it is recommended that specific equipment be at hand to practice the concepts that are taught. The image processing software that will be used is Adobe Photoshop and Bridge; the group will be processing RAW images converted to DNGs.

Recommended equipment:

  • Modified digital camera with IR capability, either UV-VIS-IR, or IR only
  • Band pass IR filters, like the Wratten 87C, Peca 910, or Xnite 1000A
  • Lights (radiation sources) rich in IR emission, like Tungsten-Halogen lights, LED IR lights, or unfiltered flash/strobe unit

Interested individuals should apply by June 9 to participate in the workshop. Those who need financial support can request it in the application. Accepted participants are expected to attend all three of the live sessions. The live sessions for the workshop will take place in Zoom and automated captions will be available.

Interested individuals should complete an application by June 9.The application will allow for a more inclusive group of participants who will be using the content directly in their work and disseminate the information amongst their communities. Below are the criteria for review. All interested conservation professionals are encouraged to apply! 30 spaces are available and applicants will be notified by June 17. Accepted participants are expected to attend all three of the live sessions.

Criteria for Review

  • Need for the content
  • Plan for dissemination of information gained
  • The program seeks to support a diverse set of participants and will consider geographic location, place of employment type, profession, and career level 

Funding for this program comes from the Foundation for Advancement in Conservation (FAIC) Endowment for Professional Development. The FAIC Endowment for Professional Development, which was created by a grant from The Mellon Foundation and is supported by donations from members of the American Institute for Conservation (AIC) and its friends. Workshops are made possible with the assistance of many AIC members, but no AIC membership dues were used to create or present this course.

FAIC relies on your contributions to support these and its many other programs. Learn more about donating to the foundation.
