What is Infrared Photography?
gilad explained it quite succinctly over seven years ago now in this journal. Infrared Photography (or IR) shows a magical, thermal type effect of a world that, without specific filters or applications, appears quite normal. It can be achieved using a filter on specific D-SLR cameras or it can be achieved with special films in Analog. This clear technique division and ever-increasing market for IR Photography means that we need your views on where the Gallery should go.
The Infrared Gallery could become a sub-category of Photography. So your infrared work would belong in:
-Photography -> Infrared
Or, because the technique can be achieved using darkroom skills and processes, your work could belong as an extension of the darkroom category. So your infrared work would belong in:
-Photography -> Darkroom -> Infrared
You might have a completely different idea - your thoughts and feedback are much appreciated! Please share with us what you believe would work best.
Once the location of the infrared gallery has been decided we also need your thoughts and feedback on whether sub-categories are required and if so, which ones would be utilized the best. Sub-categories need to be minimal, and my view is that there would not need to be many if there are any at all.
