As with all my workshops the size of the group is limited to four participants. We sat in the cafe and had a coffee, I asked each of the group what they wanted to get out of the workshop to help their IR photography. Each persons wants were discussed so they have a way forward. Most asked questions around exposure, focusing and lens hots spots.

In the tutorial I then I introduced the group to the idea of visualising the effect of IR capture. The strength of the IR effect is based on how well a surface reflects IR light. I gave the group a few ideas how surfaces like the sky, water, different colours and various types of vegetation will respond to IR.
