This is the inaugural Wally Killmartin Memorial Lecture and will be presented by Simon Weir on the subject of Infra Red – Beyond Visible Light.

Many members will remember Wally with great fondness and it was thought that a fitting tribute would be name a lecture after him to be presented once a year.

The talk from Simon should be truly interesting and in his own words;

“This fascinating and inspiring talk looks at the history of infrared photography over the last 100 years. It covers the discovery of “invisible” light, the invention of IR films and their many civilian and military uses, the move to digital camera conversion and even a moment of space exploration! Along the way I showcase the work of IR photographers from around the world as well as my own portfolio of IR images taken over 15 years.”

A couple of members already have converted cameras to infra red – perhaps this lecture will encourage others to follow a similar path.
