Today’s featured photo of the day! September’s feature is: Infrared Photography

Here is today’s featured photo. For the month of September I am featuring Infrared photography as the style. For today, I am posting another fine fall photograph on a clear midday of colorful trees with cirrus clouds in the Tinley Creek Woods in the Cook County forest preserves in Illinois. The photo is made to look like it was taken much more closer to sunset simply by substituting a yellow filter with an orange filter, which is noted with the indigo sky. I simply adore it!! Date – October 1982.

Photo taken with a Nikon FE camera through a Nikon 26 mm lens, filter=orange filter, Aperture=11 f/stop, shutter-speed 1/30th 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.

TIP:  Make sure that your focus is offset “up” using the 4 ft.=5 ft. ratio, because infrared focuses on a different plane than visible light. Some lenses include a “red” dot on them, which is the key to the IR offset. Observe the offset. Going on a photo shoot to find out that you have a batch of blurry photos is very frustrating!

Enjoy, and see you tomorrow with another fine Infrared photograph!!
