"Infrared Connecticut" by William Barnett Oct 12th at 7pm

  Join NHCC for a program "Infrared Connecticut" by William Barnett Oct 12th at 7pm

Today there is a lot of interest in infrared photography. It is a way to explore new worlds and capture fine art images. It changes the appearance of an image by creating false tones or colors. It stimulates your creativity. In this program Bill will explore what infrared (actually near infrared) radiation is and how it renders photographs of the world. Pure infrared radiation produces only black and white images, but also including part of the visible spectrum allows colored images to be created. 

The images shown in this program are the result of an extended personal project where images from across Connecticut were captured using a series of filters. Filters included a normal visible filter and a variety of filters that admitted infrared radiation plus part of the visible spectrum. Each filter produced a different result. Bill will begin by briefly describing the Infrared Connecticut project and the reasons it was undertaken. He will describe the equipment used and compare the photographs that can be obtained using different filters. Finally, he will describe the post processing steps required for each type of filter. The presentation will conclude with a showcase selected from the many images captured during the project.
