Single frame… Infrared experimentation

Pylon downPylon down
Nikon FA, Nikkor 24mm f/2.8 Ai-S + R72 filter – shutter speed unrecorded, f11, – Adox HR-50
Developed in Ilford Ilfotec DD-X at 1:4, 7½ mins at 20°c.

In a recent post about infrared photography I mentioned a roll of Adox HR-50 that was waiting to be developed… this is the first edited image from that roll…

Again, nothing complicated on the settings front, aperture priority automatic, hyperfocal focusing and +1 stop exposure compensation (in this particular instance…)

I’m definitely going to be experimenting further with infrared!

A few days ago a conversation with friends turned to ‘self-care’ and the sort of things we did that helped our mental health… Quite simply the above image sums up the thing I do most often… take a stroll in woodland with a camera and some black & white film.

Works every time.

Camera, lens and exposure details unrecorded – Ilford HP5 Plus

I’ve mentioned before the complete disarray a lot of my negatives are in and this image is a prime example!

A sheet of negatives turned up yesterday (whilst I was looking for something else) and after much head-scratching I worked out that this pic was of The Church of St Mary and All Saints in Fotheringhay, Northamptonshire and was taken in August… 1998!
