Waiting Patiently in Infrared

This is a shot of a couple of my kids waiting semi-patiently for me to shoot some other infrared images. It was so miserably hot that day. Hopefully you’re out enjoying your summer weekend and not hanging on the blogs too much today. I’m going to try to do the same. The temps are going to be below normal for one more day, and I don’t want to waste my Saturday indoors.

Camera - Minolta Maxxum 7000
Film - Kodak HIE Infrared (I think I rated it at 200
Shutter Speed - 1/30
Aperture Setting - f-11 Aperture Mode
Lens - Sigma 35-135mm zoom lens
#25 Red Filter
Scanning Method - My scan from my cheap little hp officejet 5510v all-in-one copy/scanner/faxer/printer


Things I’m Thankful to Cliff For…. Watching you and Mom dance together. You two had some really fancy footwork back then.

Micki, I love the tension between the two girls in this photo. If you hadn't told me they were patiently waiting for you I would have interpreted this photo as two girls who were intentionally ignoring each other over some spat. Well done.

I also was thinking of a post argument scene. Especially with the great road sign included in the shot.

There is a surreal quality about IR images but you’ve added a human tension here as an extra. I do admire this creative work.

Nice! I love the infra-red effect! It makes me want to get my old Sony 717 fixed so I can shoot psuedo-infra-red with it's night mode again.
Hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Infrared was a good choice for this. Everything here looks so calm and relaxing.

Absolutely stonking shot, you could not have composed them any better if you tried. Choice of infra really siuits this shot. I have not tried this effect before (NOTE to self: Try it).

Love the way yoiur daughter sat is in the light and all and the other daughter in the shade both facing totaly different directions without a thought for the camera (guess they used to it now). Brilliant brilliant shot. A definite keeper.

They look a little like ghosts :) I like the placement and poses of each of them, and they did so well to sit still in the hot weather!

Very cool! On top of the whole infrared style, I dig the arrangement of the subjects... like an album cover where the subject is to look totally uninterested.
