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 nice summer photo of a set of trees in the Tinley Creek Woods in the Cook County forest preserves in Illinois. A truly stunning photo! Date – June 1981.

Tinley Creek 1__Kodak HIE-135-20

Photo taken with a Nikon EM camera through a Nikon 50 mm lens, filter=red #25 filter, Aperture=22 f/stop, shutter-speed 1/1000th second, loaded with Kodak High Speed Infrared HIE 135-20 Black & White Film processed using Kodak D-76 Chemicals using a black colored universal tank with metal reel. Enlargement processed 100% negative size onto 3½x5″ smooth semi-gloss image enlargement paper using Dektol/Stop Bath/Fixer chemistry.

FACT:  The shelf life of exposed Kodak High Speed Infrared HIE Black & White Film was hours, and had to be developed as soon as exposed. The film was very expensive for the time, and anything over 12 hours almost certainly had light leak through the camera and ruin the roll. I typically kept the camera in a shaded black carrier within the camera bag the whole time except when exposing the film. The roll was contained with a roll and a black lid instead of the grey lid, and needed to be developed in a total “black room” instead of a dark room.

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