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.

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……

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

liked the group,thought i'd post some construction paper collage/

glow in the dark art on here,here's a link to one my youtube vids to my glow in the dark paintings…

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.

I've been looking all over the place to find a way to answer to my expert status invitation, but I can't find anything else than the general comments here, so they'll have to do.

Thank you so much for inviting me to the expert rank! :O I'll do my best to live up to what that implies! 

Cheers, Max
