W/NW: B&W Infrared

Please include a description of gear/film/conversion that you used to create your B&W IR image. For this image, I used a Sony A7R that was modified by Kolari to full spectrum conversion, along with an 850nm filter.

Hi Peter - this image is from the same series as the other IR photo I posted. I think a lot of that glow is from the lighting and shadows, as well as using an 850nm filter vs a 720nm filter.

Great thread and stunning photo! Hopefully I will have some images to contribute soon!

I am currently working on a roll of the Rollei 400 IR with a Fuji IR 76 gel filter. This filter is equivalent to the Kodak 88A, and right at the limit of what is recommended for the Rollei IR film. Will have photos to contribute soon, and confirm if this combo produces the lovely glow!

I've used the Rollei 400 IR in the past and in my experience you don't get the glow like you used to with Kodak HIE or Efke 820 Aura. Still pretty nice though (although I think I got some bromide drag developing this roll, causing the brighter lines).

Here's a shot on Rollei I took last year

If only Kodak would bring HIE back. I used my last roll in Highgate Cemetery

Both images shot on Voigtlander Bessa R3A, 40mm MC Nokton, Hoya R72 filter.

Here are some results from a roll of Rollei 400 IR I recently shot in my Brownie.

I taped a Fuji IR 76 gel filter over the lens, and exposed for about a half second on a tripod. These could have used a little more exposure, but the filter is doing a pretty good job, me thinks.

Some nice images - I'm envious of those who are shooting IR film. I can never get the correct exposure.

I found the old Kodak HIE emulsion with a large enough negative was great for photos of older ladies whose skin is no longer what it once was. This was a friend who was still in good shape but her skin was showing long term impact from years of surfing and other outdoor activities as well as her age.

This was shot on Kodak Aerographic 2424, a 70mm film coated with the same emulsion as HIE. It was cut down and respooled as 120.

This original photo was posted here some 10-12 years ago but someone had a problem with nipples and a patch of pubic hair. So this version has been masked to placate those who believe such is not natural.

A bit late but exposure is actually simple. Do a test noting shutter speed and f-stop but ignoring what i.e. your visible light meter is set at. Remember your actual exposure is mostly by the IR part of the spectrum and not by the predominantly unrelated visible part of the spectrum that your light meter reads.

I always shot HIE with a 25A red filter at f11, 1/250th. What e.i. was that? Whatever gave me f11, 1/250th.

You must figure out your film and filter combo. Just deal with f-stop and shutter speed not e.i. from a visible light meter.

Always remember there is no such thing as a "correct" IR exposure or neg. You have the flexibility to vary the look of your print to fit what you want simply by using the density of the neg.
Remember, there is much, much more to utilizing B&W IR film than light colored foliage and dark skies. I'd love to see some other uses.

New Smyrna Beach FL where the #2 activity is pedaling down to the beach to check the surf conditions.

This was 35mm HIE with a 25A but speeded up to 1/500th from my normal f11, 1/250th due to the cloudless sky and reflectance from the bright white sand.
