More experiments with infrared film. I recently acquired an 87-c gel filter that transmits only infrared light. The filter cannot be seen through unlike the red filter usually used when shooting with infrared so focusing and composition is done without the filter and then the filter is placed over the lens before the exposure is taken. Much longer exposures have to be made so a tripod was needed for these pictures since the exposure was usually around 1 second. The result is the maximum infrared effect, totally black skys and foliage bleached white. The pictures were taken in late afternoon and a cloudless sky made for rather harsh shadows, the bottom image was taken in the shade and required a long exposure thus the blurring of the foliage in the background from wind movement. The flowers over the grave were dark green geraniums with red blossums.
