Infrared at Crook Hall Gardens

After my recent foray into converting scanned colour film images into fake-infrared using Adobe Lightroom I was enthused to load a roll of “real” Infrared fiilm into my Yashicamat 124G twin-lens reflex. The film chosen was Rollei IR400, which has a nominal ISO of 400 as the name suggests, but to take account of the use of a Hoya R72 filter, I rated the film at ISO 6. This represented a six-stop allowance for the filter factor, which may be on the higher end of the range needed on the sunny day in question; ISO 12, or a five stop filter factor, may have been enough. Anyway it doesn’t matter too much as there’s some flexibility to adjust appearance in post-processing.

The film was developed in Kodak T-Max developer for 5m46s at 21C in a Jobo processor, based on the times listed in the Massive Dev Chart, adjusted for temperature and continuous agitation.

The venue was Crook Hall Gardens in Durham.

    Love how the foliage turns white, lovely use of infrared. That’s a strange figure by the bike, I thought he may be a scarecrow but not on a bike under a tree I suppose 🙂

      I think he’s definitely a scarecrow .. the bike is a mutation given by evolution to counteract crows who have come to recognise non-bike-owning scarecrows
