Fractal Gradients

Calling ALL members.

Some time ago, Jenny C0MPASSION :iconc0mpassion: 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!!"

Expert Member Folders


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.

Here are two links……

The Infrared-Club (Extra-Visible Imaging) :iconinfrared-club: and its Affiliate Stellar-Landscapers :iconstellar-landscapers: thought it would be useful to highlight some of the growing body of work on astrophotography to be found on DA. Such images are within the general remit of The Infrared-Club (Extra-Visible Imaging) in that long exposure techniques are usually needed to capture images that would otherwise not be visible to the unaided eye, and obviously such images are the very stuff of the  Stellar-Landscapers Group.

There are several groups on DA that feature astro-photography: :iconastro-photography: :iconbeautiful-cosmos: :iconastro-foto: :iconm-o-o-n-struck: :iconmoon-club:

Digital photography has brought the photography of the stars and other astronomical bodies within easy reach for amateurs, even those of modest means and experience. A camera capable of long exposure settings, particularly the bulb setting, a sturdy tripod, plenty of time, and a clear night sky allow anyone to point the camera upwards, and to record heaven knows what. As well as important technical aspects - the science side of astrophotography - such work also allows the development of stunning artistic images. Here we present mainly creative images from some of the favourite themes in astrophotography.

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

Thank you for the link - very interesting. I think the problem is that the work doesn't seem to fit into infrared or exposure techniques for this particular group. Nevertheless, if you had some more simple examples of paints and paintings that showed phosphorescence or fluoresced then we might be able to run them.
