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 a photograph of a Halloween setting in the front of a house on a side street in Oak Lawn, Illinois. A unique photo captures incandescent lighting in its true form with infrared photography. Date – October 1982.

Halloween House__Oak Lawn_Kodak Ektacolor IE-135-20

Photo taken with a tripod mounted Nikon FE camera through a Vivitar 70-150 zoom lens zoomed in at 108 mm, filter=yellow filter, Aperture=3.8 f/stop, shutter-speed 1 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:  Always use a bulb instead of the shutter to take all of your tripod mounted shots when the shutter speed is 1/15th of a second or less. Bulbs are inserted into the shutter by screwing them into it and activate the shutter without vibrating the camera while exposing the film, hence making it possible to capture the photo without blurring.

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