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 photo of a nice summer set of trees in the Tinley Creek Woods in the Cook County forest preserves in Illinois. An awesome photo! Date – June 1981.
Photo taken with Nikon EM camera through a Nikon 50 mm lens, filter=red #25 filter, Aperture=22 f/stop, shutter-speed 1/500th 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: Red filter #25 produce a more extreme infrared effect, and block out almost all visible light. When working with standard black and white, they are very suited for architectural photography and landscapes because they require a tripod and long exposure times, because they require 2 to 3 extra f/stops more light exposure. High speed infrared film allowed the exposure at a higher rate and less exposure. ☼
Enjoy, and see you tomorrow with another fine Infrared photograph!!
