General Informations - Rules for r72 Group

New members are welcomed!

Members submit their genuine infrared photographs to our submission folder, which is named after the current month. The submission limit is ten (10!) pictures per week. Photographs which are accepted by the admins in a voting process are later moved to the appropriate gallery folders (e.g. "Magic Trees").

Please indicate in the description of the deviation what ir technique you used - e.g. filter, converted camera, other.

Reasons for declining a submission include:
- Bad lighting conditions
- Over- or underexposures
- Lack of sharpness
- Poor compositions
- Disturbing watermarks (e.g. big dA watermark, or watermark in center of image)
- Non-infrared images or a non infrared "feeling" in the pictures

By declining an image we do not want to discourage your work or your future submissions. Please spend time in our galleries and feel free to ask questions about techniques used to achieve images that impress you.

The making of infrared photos you can find in our tutorial gallery folder -->>… and in gilad's journal -->>… .

Thanks a lot for your kind support of Abstract-and-Surreal

My greatest pleasure :-)

Indeed it would be great to have an own category for this special kind of technique. Hmmm, difficult to decide for me which place Photography -> IR or Photography -> Darkroom -> IR  would be the right position as it could be directly a photography or an edit. What do you think because of your experience in the IR groups is the most used kind of technique (filter or reedit)?

MichiLauke Featured By Owner May 1, 2015   Photographer
Many people use an ir filter like the Hoya r72 on the lens and than the edit the photo in photoshop (red and blue color channel change or just black and white and so on). IR photos generally have to be edited in this or that way because just a raw pic is mostly very unattractive.

But more and more photographers have also converted cameras with built in filters even in high expensive models like the 5D Mark2 or best Nikons because they can be used like normal cameras for handheld shots. You don't need than a tripod anymore.

It doesn't matter which technique or which kind of editings is used for Infrared Photography. Even Kodak Infrared Films can be used. Infrared Photography is now more than 100 years old.

The main thing is it makes visible the surreal invisible range of light above 700nm which is real everywhere but non visible for human beings. So it is not just a technique or just a filter. It is the key to open a door to a secret fascinating area of live.

I hope my bad English is understandable enough to describe this interesting area of Infrared Photography.
