The Infrared-Club (Extra-Visible Imaging) welcomes you to the Best of September 2015 Feature.



Please fave this Feature! If you don't do anything else, please, please fave this Feature. There is a very good reason for faving. This Feature is posted under the heading of Art Features in DA's hierarchy of submissions. If we can get 30 - 40 faves we can have the Feature in the top section of the popular Art Features for perhaps 24 hours. If we get that spot, we get more views. If we get more views, your works get more exposure, and possibly get more faves and views. You become more popular, your Watchers soar, your status goes through the roof, and who knows, you become a rock star, marry into a wealthy family, stand for the Presidency and rule the World - all because you FAVED the Feature. So, do it NOW!!!

Innovation




As usual, the :iconinfrared-club: brings you innovative features. Early in the month, I posted a Feature on innovative post-processing techniques using the Google/Nik software Siver Efex Pro 2 ==> 

fIRe - Innovative Infrared:iconinfrared-club::iconinfrared-club::iconinfrared-club::iconinfrared-club::iconinfrared-club:
The advent of digital photography and the rise of powerful digital editing techniques has allowed infrared photography (IR photography) to move on from the traditional film based images that relied on the Woods Effect ("white" foliage) and the lack of scattering of IR light ("black" skies and long distance clarity). The relatively simple software processing of channel swapping, while still a useful technique, is giving way to more innovative techniques such as colour renditions, and highly structured contrast images. Infrared photographers recognise that there are no limits on how to interpret and develop images captured by sensors sensitive to IR light. Here are five innovative images that all come from basic IR captures taken with my converted Canon 40D camera. The principal software used for development was the Google/Nik suite, particularly Silver Efex Pro 2. The purpose of these images


Later in the month, I launched a video on YouTube featuring several of our members who had agreed to their work being shown. The full Feature is here ==>

Now, I have been upstaged!  Here is a real IR video produced by ArchAngelica :iconarchangelical: Go check this out NOW!
