I have compiled a set of folders containing examples of work from some of our senior Expert Members. I hope that everyone will view these to see the range of styles, subject matter and quality of work that is possible in infrared and exposure technique photography.

Revesre Image Searching

I posted a Journal on my Home Page on this topic and I think all our members should take note of the methods described if they wish to check on their own images or are suspicious of images that they come across here.

Reverse Image SearchingReverse Image Searching
From time to time here on DeviantArt, I come across or am told about images that may not be the work of the artist or photographer who has posted them. Sometimes, I also find that my images turns up, without attribution, elsewhere on the Web. In the first case, posting work that is not yours without attribution is morally wrong, and in some cases is illegal. In the second instance, you have been the victim of art theft.
DA has a "Report this image" button on the display page of each image. If you find a dodgy work, you can click this and follow the menu of options to report your suspicions. I have done this on several occasions for works I know to have been filched from elsewhere, and nothing appears to have been done about it  the doubtful works are still displayed. On one occasion, I tackled the perpetrator, but to no avail  I was just blocked.
Often these dodgy deviants are highlighted by vigilant members who post Journals flagging the miscreant, an

I decided to check on some of my infrared images and found several on a site Further, one of our Expert Members, helios-spada has much of his work displayed and credited to the famous American photographer - helios-spada. Needless to say, he was not aware of this accolade.

I found IR photography to be very popular on this site with hosts of shots that thought I recognised. You may wish to check for yourselves to see if any of your works are there. If you find any, let me know and I'll post a list to the site asking for credit to be given.

Infrared-Club Selection March 2014

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 1, 2014, 3:39 AM
:iconinfrared-club: :iconinfrared-club: :iconinfrared-club::iconinfrared-club::iconinfrared-club::iconinfrared-club::iconinfrared-club:

Mike Schwarz mIkeschwaRz and I have put together a selection of the outstanding work from the last month. As usual selection has proved difficult especially as we have had a very healthy input to both infrared and exposure technique categories. Two or three members have submitted many high quality and inventive images this month and choosing only two or three of their works for this selection seems a bit mean, but we need to give wide coverage where we can. Those particular members are vw1956 Questavia and MichiLauke.

Admin Help Required


The Group has expanded considerably from a few months ago, and with the expansion has come additional work running the Group. We have many able and talented members whose contributions have been recognised by becoming Expert Members.

However, I am now looking for (experienced) members to help out at the Associate level. This is the level where development of Groups occurs as well as the main day-to-day running. Ideally, I would like someone who has some experience of CSS to help develop a house style, and/or someone who could develop affiliations.

If ANY member (including Expert Members) is interested, please note me.

Many Thanks
