Extra-Visible Imaging

January-February 2015 Folders


I am leaving the present January 2015 folders open until the end of February. We have not had that many submissions this last month, as is normal for Winter in the Northern Hemisphere, and I am off to Australia for 3 weeks and have no time to review current work nor write the Best of Feature before my departure.

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.

Our good friend Michael MichiLauke is running a similar scheme at :iconr72: here ==>….

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……

Best of December 2014

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 3, 2015, 2:02 AM


The Infrared-Club (Extra-Visible Imaging) presents the Best of December 2014 from submissions to the Infrared Showcase and Exposure Techniques Galleries.


Welcome to new members : SchizoChino :iconschizochino:   ToneeGee :icontoneegee: AlecsPS :iconalecsps:

Infrrared Gradients Project by Lady-Compassion :iconlady-compassion: : The Journal for this featuring many of the fractals and associated infrared images has generated a large number of views (nearly 500). The final gradients package is likely to be available soon. Our thanks to Jenny once again.

Submissions: Can I direct members' attention to two Journal submissions in particular this month? The first is from Phostructor :iconphostructor:, Steven, who has a Kickstart project running ==>…. He requires some more backers.The project is about creating an exhibition of infrared photography. Please support him if you can.

The second is from mIkeschwaRz :iconmikeschwarz: and is his personal selection of the Best Infrared from 2014. If you have not already seen this, please check it out as it contains an excellent selection and summary of the work presented to the Group. My thanks to Mike for this. I would be very pleased if others would like to present their own selections or collections of infrared and exposure technique images. If any help is needed in compiling such selections, please let me know.

             A Little Aid for Art
To my fellow IR enthusiasts, I have a Kickstarter campaign to mount a brick and mortar show next spring. It has hit a lull, so I am taking the liberty of soliciting here in our groups. (I apologize to those who see this twice). If you can pledge anything I will be eternally grateful. I also ask you to spread the word far and wide to anyone you know who likes IR, or who ever buys art, or both!
Residents of the US and Canada will get the rewards as offered. The various non-digital rewards I offer can not be made available world wide because of shipping costs. I will try to make a custom international digital package for each and every international pledge at each different pledge level. I am open to suggestions and requests.
Thank you all for your consideration, and for being part of our wonderful community.
Sincerely, Steven Nossiter

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.


Okavanga Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2014
No probs - just resubmit to the Exposure Techniques Gallery.
