I am now launching a new feature at Versatileer…A featured photo of the day! September’s feature is: Infrared Photography
I will be posting a new photo every day with a theme. Vintage photos, different themes. To kick things off, today’s featured photo and all of the month of September I am featuring Infrared photography. For today, I am posting what exactly infrared photos are and the spectrum they use. You will be able to see that the spectrum is down on the near side shifted over and out of the red spectrum, as the featured rainbows show the results.
Photo # 1 is taken on Kodacolor then ASA (ISO) 100 speed film processed C-41 with a tripod through a Nikon EM with a Nikon 26 mm lens, filter=polarizer, Aperture=22 f/stop, shutter-speed 1/30th second. Enlargements processed standard color process on 4×6″ silk standard color image enlargement paper.
Photo # 2 is taken with the same Nikon 26 mm lens put onto a Nikon FE camera, filter=polarizer and yellow filter, Aperture=22 f/stop, shutter-speed 1/15th second, loaded with Kodak Ektachrome Infrared Color IE 135-20 Infrared Slide Film processed E-6 using Kodak Ektachrome Chemicals. Enlargement processed Type R color positive paper and R-3000 chemistry onto 3½x5″ glossy negative color image enlargement paper.
I am super happy to bring this very nice feature to everyone. Enjoy, and see you tomorrow with another fine Infrared photograph!!
