“Panoramic Infrared Reflectography. Technical Recommendations” has been published on the International Journal of Conservation Science, IJCS Volume 5, Issue 1, January-March 2014: 51-60. In this paper I provide more detailed information on the new technique of doing infrared reflectography with a panoramic system. I have been posting on this idea from a while on the blog. This is the method I teach on my training programs and I use myself for art examination.
From the abstract: “This paper presents some practical recommendations on performing Infrared Reflectography
by using an InGaAs camera and consumer-level panoramic photography tools. This method employs a panoramic head to precisely rotate the InGaAs camera and shoot a sequence of images around the entrance pupil of the lens. Then the images are automatically stitched by panoramic imaging software. Panoramic Infrared Reflectography has several advantages; it is fast and mobile; it can be implemented with low-budget equipment, already available commercially and no specific skill or expertise is required”.
For other resources on this method the Blog has 6 other posts and 5 videos on this topic.
