    With so many people asking questions lately in relation to Infrared film, we decided to organise a one day Infrared B&W Film Photography workshop to act as an introduction for anyone interested in this unusual film. This workshop will teach you all the basics required to start using IR B&W film.

    We will show you how to expose various types of Infrared film currently on the market and how the combination of film and filter choice affect the final result. We will also dispel some of the myths and misconceptions about using Infrared film.

    This is a fun day which will start with a brief discussion and presentation of examples of infrared prints. Then it’s out to shoot some selected locations to put the theory to the test.

    Participants will need to bring a 35mm film SLR camera plus a tripod. Two rolls of 35mm film will be provided and development of these films is also included in the workshop fee.

    Venue: Trim Castle, Co Meath
    Date: 16th August 2008
    Time: 10:00 to 17:00
    Cost: €75

    Please log on to www.fpworkshops.com for more information or to make a booking.

    Workshops are a great boost to get you jump-started on a technique or material unfamiliar to you. I highly recommend them. A long time ago I took a weekend infrared workshop at the ICP in NYC and it helped a great deal.

    Hi Peter,

    if this workshop goes ahead I would like to attend. My out of date Kodak HIE is almost gone, so I'll be keen to see what the alternatives are like.

    Cheers
    Vincent

    Hi Vincent,

    I'll pm you later with details of how to book etc. but somehow having looked at your work I think you could teach me a thing or two about IR.

    This workshop has been put back to 30th August due to the heavy rain and flooding which was forecasted for today and duly arrived, we decided to put this workshop back to the 30th August. A second date has also been arranged for the 13th September and we are taking bookings for both.

    I tried to post this yesterday but the site was down at the time.

    I hope our Irish friends have avoided the worst of the flooding, which judging by the news reports have been very bad in places.

    Thankfully we're ok, many houses and farms badly hit though, sporting events and gigs cancelled. If any more rain falls I'll be putting a snorkel kit on my land rover....:rolleyes:

    That's good to know.
    By the way I was at the Rock of Dunamaise a few weeks ago and have it marked as somewhere to revisit with the 5x4 and a box of IR film. So don't miss the opportunity.
