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 magnificent summer set of trees in the Tinley Creek Woods in the Cook County forest preserves in Illinois. How breathtaking! Date – June 1981.

Tinley Creek 3__Kodak HIE-135-20

Photo taken with Nikon EM camera through a Nikon 50 mm lens, filter=red #25 filter, Aperture=22 f/stop, shutter-speed 1/250th 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:  Shooting infrared on a cloudy day is tricky. Most of the time only a 1/2 of an f/stop down is observed while working with visible light a whole f/stop down is typical

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