No other reason really, and not much text – much to everyone’s relief!
First one of Efke 820 IR film in an OM1, lightly textured and toned.
Next one from an Olympus 8080 (which was quite good at IR) on some nearby heathland. A very slight touch of ‘diffuse glow’ just lifted it – trying to mimic the ‘aura’ effect of IR films like the much missed Kodak Hi Speed.
Hope you like them – have a good weekend!
Your writing is always entertaining, Rob – No worries. These are gorgeous!
I used to use Kodak’s black and white infrared film a lot in the 1970s and 80s. I’ve long since switched from film to digital and from black and white to color, but about a year ago I nostalgically posted one of my old pictures:
I haven’t experimented with digital techniques for mimicking the look of the old infrared, but maybe someday I will.
Hello Steve – there’s still some IR film available (Rollei for example) if you’d like to give it another try. Thanks for the comment.
