Infrared photography is enjoying a recent resurgence of interest. This lecture offers the answers to the most common questions a photographer might ask in order to begin exploration in the spectrum of light that we cannot see. Topics covered will be gear options (lens filters versus converted cameras), choice of infrared lens/sensor filters, and how to avoid common capture pitfalls. A selection of black-and-white images from Penelope’s work will also be presented.
Penelope Taylor is a New Jersey-based photographic artist. Her father introduced Penelope to single-lens reflex film cameras in her early teens. In 2003, she began working with digital cameras and later embraced the iPhone (camera) as an artistic tool.
Her passion is traveling throughout the United States and Canada to capture her favorite subject which is landscape.
In 2015, she began to exclusively produce work using Nikon digital cameras that are converted for infrared and full-spectrum photography.
In 2017, Penelope began to offer infrared-specific landscape photo workshops where she teaches capture and black-and-white processing techniques.
