Hello and Welcome to the Infrared Photography Society (IRPS), please take a few moments to let everyone know who you are and where you’re from. Biographies are good, but not essential. Above all, be creative and lets have some fun..

Group Description

Membership to the is open to all interested photographers.

For the enthusiastic amateur photographer digital infrared photography has opened up a whole new world of imagery. The peculiarities of infrared photography lie in its ability to record what the human eye cannot see. Infrared photography captures radiation wavelengths just beyond those of the deepest reds of the visible spectrum (700 nm).

The unmistakable characteristics of an infrared image are deep black skies, bright white foliage and that magical, sometimes eerie diffused glow. In fact, many scenes, which under normal lighting conditions maybe considered ordinary to some, are often transformed when captured in infrared. With digital infrared there are a number of different ways in which the final image can be processed giving the photographer complete artistic control.

All IRPS members are invited to submit their work to the group’s infrared image pool. This pool will act as a permanent, but changing exhibition of members work, a showcase for the very best in near infrared photography.

For those photographers amongst us who regularly submit work to photographic exhibitions will know and understand that there runs a fine line between having their work accepted or, in some cases, rejected! If your work isn’t accepted into the IRPS image pool, please, don’t take it to heart. We simply want to showcase the best of what our members have to offer in terms of image quality and also pictorial content. Therefore, the decisions made by the IRPS selections board will be final and no further correspondence will be entertained.

As a participating IRPS member you must also agree not to post any material which could be construed as abusive, insulting or threatening. Any member who resorts to this type of misconduct will be removed from the society’s register without further notice.

You remain solely responsible for the content of your posts. However, the IRPS admin team reserve the right to remove messages or entire posts at their discretion.
