Camera - Minolta Maxxum 7000
Film - Kodak HIE Infrared film shot at ISO 100
Shutter Speed - 1/10
Aperture Setting - f-11 Aperture Mode
Lens - Minolta 75-300mm zoom lens @ 85mm
Red #25 and Polarizing Filter – stacking the filters gives me the same effect as using an infrared filter and still allows me to use autofocus
Scanning Method - My scan from my cheap little hp officejet 5510v all-in-one copy/scanner/faxer/printer

When I first saw this house that sits northeast from the more remote entrance to our county park, I knew I wanted it to be a subject for an infrared shot. On this day, the skies were nice and blue and the sun high and shining down from behind me on everything that was green. Perfect conditions for shooting infrared.

Have you ordered the latest issue of Lightleaks? Get ‘em while they’re hot!

The infared film gives this a special character. You had this spotted for some the pay off. Very nice shot.

Wonderful quality to this one. It reminds me of an old move still from Gone With the Wind!

I think infrared can be a little too surreal but I like the composition to this, makes the already well framed image even more interesting. Looks like a faded image from the wild west perhaps...

These IR shots are a heady mix of reality and the unreal and the results continue to intrigue. I should really try it . . .

Wow what a moody result this process gives images. Very spooky and intriguing at the same time.

Infrared is something I never tried. In forty some years of shooting film I NEVER shot IR? Given your lovely result here, guess I'll have to fire up the A-1 and give it a try.

Nive image.

Micki, that is totally cool! Can't do that with digital, unless you have specially adapted camera. You can, however, simulate it though. :-) Great subject, too!

When viewed at the larger size, this shot has quite a painterly feel. Lovely stuff!
