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.

The list is likely to be updated from time to time.

Please take time to browse through the work of these photographers.

Fractal Gradients

Calling ALL members.

Some time ago, Jenny Lady-Compassion :iconlady-compassion: posted an idea about creating gradient packages from infrared images posted in this Group. The package is about ready, and Jenny requestes that I re-post her original note and asks if anyone who does NOT want an image considered for a gradient to contact her. Here is the original.

"I am not a photographer, but a creator of fractal images. I find beautiful and cool colors everywhere, but some of the most vivid and striking are in the Infra-red photos.

I would like to see if any of your photographer's would be willing to let me use their colors from their photo's for an Infra red Gradient Package. Each artist and the photo would receive credit when a fractal using their art is they would again receive recognition when the Gradient Package would be released. It often takes me about 6 months to put a package together.

I would offer this package as Premium Downloadable Content to help fund incentives and contests I run through the fractal group and ones I run personally. When I say nominal fee....I mean like 30 points per packet or less.

I do not alter a photograph in any way....I just "lift" the colors from the photo and then apply it to the fractal. Some times the outcome is gorgeous beautiful!!"

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.

Here are two links……

“IR Conversions and White Balance” by jythie

Infrared Gradients Project - Fractals by Jenny

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 10, 2014, 5:47 AM
Jenny, Lady-Compassion :iconlady-compassion:, has been a long-time supporter of the :iconinfrared-club: often working behind the scenes to promote the Group  and infrared photography. One of her insights into our kind of photography is that as well as its surreal air, there are endless ways to present images in terms of colours and textures - there is no correct way of presenting colour in infrared work. We only have to think of and look at the works of, for example, myINQI, helios-spada, mIkeschwaRz, and occasionally of myself Okavanga to see the possibilities of colour presentation. Jenny saw the possibilities of taking these unique colour palettes and using them as gradients in fractal art. Without going into any detail, fractal art involves generating a space that is visualised by using colours, sometimes a very simply array, sometimes computer generated, sometimes abstracted from other images, in order to "colour in" that fractal space. Jenny uses, mainly, Ultra-Fractal and Apophysis as her sources of fractals, and makes, again mainly, circular designs whose colours come from such gradients. She has taken many of our infrared images and used them in her creations, with the overall aim of creating a package of gradients for use in the fractal community. I have picked a dozen examples of her recent work and present them below along with the photographs from which the gradients have been made.

I am sure everyone in the Group wishes to thank Jenny very much for all her attention and help, and for this wonderful project that can only enhance the staus of infrared photography and its surreal nature. I hope everyone will visit her gallery… and check out these marvellous works. See also  To Those I Love and Watchers too!The amount of fractals I will be releasing Daily will be INSANE!
 I have so enjoyed creating dihedral fractals (which I often call ICONIC)  (for the most part) to showcase the 
wondrous beauty of infra-red photography as well as
extra-visible light as seen in the group  :iconinfrared-club:
I have well over 100 fractals and their beautiful pictures to upload.
I know it is a terrible amount to look through every single one...
But I HOPE my WATCHERS and others will take time to maybe look at just ONE or TWO each day
Leaving a comment for me about something you like or dislike or encouragement about 
my work...but also take a look at the fantastic and brilliant photos which inspired these fractals.

Once I have posted them all....I will release the gradient package from the pho

Many Thanks, Jenny, from us all.

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

Hi, I've just been asked to submit a deviation...

A Stately Pile the group, but it it isn't an infrared shot so I declined, but I now see that you accept some images other than IR. Apologies for any confusion.
