- Infrared Photography, Gabriel Alonso
Professional photographer Gabriel Alonso, a frequent judge and speaker for Fort Worth Camera Club, will discuss techniques for making infrared images.
The infrared spectrum is light that is not visible to the human eye. The human eye normally can see a color range determined by a measure of wavelength nanometers, or nm. We view wavelengths of 400 nm to 700 nm. Infrared light is beyond 700 nm.
You may want to practice infrared photography in time for monthly competition. Digital images may be submitted by midnight on the first Thursday of each month. Competition is open only to members who have paid current year dues.
Our in-person meetings are open to the public, but have been cancelled through August. When possible, we will offer programs online to members and/or to the public. Stay safe. Learn more.

Glen Ellman began photographing firefighters while growing up on Long Island, NY. He published his first fire image in Newsday at age 14, and later photographed a tragic, nationally reported fire in Syracuse, NY, while a photojournalism student at Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications.
He has captured more than 2 million frames of firefighters and EMS responders at fires and behind the scenes at stations and training.
Glen has been making images in the Fort Worth-Dallas area for more than 30 years. He began his career as a newspaper photographer, including at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. He now provides commercial photo services to businesses, community organizations and other clients, along with his work as the official photographer for the Fort Worth Fire Department.
