Behind the Church - In Infrared


Blogger micki said...

Busy, busy day today. Fun busy, though! Went out to shoot the sunset last night. A storm was brewing and all the boaters were making a mad dash for land. After the sun went down, it started rockin’!! You do not want to be next to the water when a storm comes in. When all the boaters had left, all storm watchers came out to park on the beach and watch the wind, rain, and lighting. It was wild!!

This is another from my roll of infrared film. It’s anything goes Saturday, and I really didn’t have much planned. This little graveyard is behind the church that I shot the steeple reflection and backlit steeple from. The sun was really shining down on the headstones, so I got that nice HIE glow.

Camera - Minolta Maxxum 7000
Film - Kodak HIE Infrared film
Shutter Speed - 1/10
Aperture Setting - f-11 Aperture Mode
Lens - Sigma 35-135mm
#25 Red Filter and Polarizing Filter
Scanning Method - My scan from my cheap little hp officejet 5510v all-in-one copy/scanner/faxer/printer

I can relate to your comment, "This little graveyard is behind the church that I shot the steeple reflection and backlit steeple from." No matter how large or small your range is, I think we photographers have these places we like to go back to, over and over. We keep trying to capture something that we can't find words to describe! I do anyway. I really like this shot - it makes me want to get out to a particular cemetery that I have had my eye on as I drive past!!

WoW! Micki. You've inspired me once again to do this infra red thing. I'm really feeling this one.

I really like infared work. This one is great, a little "spooky" but has a wonderful feel to it.

I've never seen infrared photography like this before. It's a really cool effect. It works especially well with the cemetary. Kind of gives it a lonely feeling, borderline on eerie. Very cool.

I love infrared shots. This is beautiful, as was the last shot. I love that infrared makes foliage so dreamlike and fluffy. Great :)

I agree with solaria - the infrared film gave it a bit of a "spooky" feeling. I like it!

The infrared produces a novel look that is most attractive. Excellent.

i did not see very much infrared photos in my's a strage feeling when you look at this's a good looking should see the graveyards in have big crosses, mediu crosses, gigantic crosses...crosses made by marble, crosses made by wood, stone...if you die and you have money you have a big grave...if you are poor you have a small one...i like that in america and other country's all graves are the size...

Awesome shot. I'm curious, wouldn't you be using an infrared filter also, and keep exposure longer? I don't know specs of the Kodak HIE, but I guess it still might be effected by higher frequency light? Cheers
