    Magnificent shots….

    Do they still make infrared film? I bought some ages and ages ago and never used it. I adore these shots, by the way, as well as your blow-by-blow on the process. The second one, especially, is filled with a singular lonely beauty. Love that.

      As far as I’m aware, Ilford SFX 200 is the only IR film still in production. I could be wrong though so don’t hold me on that! Various out of date IR films are available on Ebay etc though.

      • Courtenay Bluebird October 1, 2012 at 2:40 pm - Reply

        I LOVE Ilford film! I think the infrared I bought was Ilford as well. Since they still make it, I can probably get it through my local photography supply shop. Thank you for this info. I’ve been wondering about this for awhile. Very kind of you!

        Another question: Do you ever shoot with film anymore? I love your digital work very much. I haven’t made the leap yet to a digital SLR, but I am enjoying what you’re doing with this medium. And I am doubly-impressed with your generosity of spirit about your methodology. You are so talented!

          No problem, if you can’t find it in your local shop, its available on eBay. You will also need a filter to get IR style results, just in-case you didn’t know, and if you didn’t i would strongly advise putting some research in before shooting the film, there’s plenty of information available online.

          I think you may have got confused, the photo this comment is on is not mine. However, I do shoot with film almost all the time, there are a few pictures i have posted on my wordpress blog, and i will post more in the future, if you’re interested to look it’s at

          • Courtenay Bluebird October 1, 2012 at 4:52 pm

            Oh my gosh, you DO shoot on film, don’t you! Please post more. How long have you been shooting? Do you do your own processing?

            I used to do my own black and white processing— trying to get back to it. I don’t know how easy it will be to kit out my darkroom again. (Last time, it was the bathroom. This time, it will be the laundry room. At least, I think it will.

            I now remember why I never shot the infrared Ilford. I do not have filters for my vintage Leica. I contemplated a makeshift filter held over the lens, but it would not be light-tight. And my hands are not super-steady. Thanks for the additional tips!

          • shanebradwell October 2, 2012 at 11:42 am

            I will certainly post more in the future : )

            I’ve been shooting on film for around 3 months, I previously used digital but my camera was stolen and unfortunately wasn’t insured, so I bought a 35mm SLR on ebay as I couldn’t afford to replace my digital at the time, Initially just to tide me over until I could afford to replace my digital and so i could expand my knowledge of photography in the meanwhile, however, I’ve now developed a real fondness of film and vintage cameras and have started to expand my collection of film cameras and equipment. I will eventually buy another digital, but when I do, I’ll be using it alongside my film cameras instead of replacing them.

            I have been toying with the idea of processing my film myself, but I don’t at the moment, I just need to decide where I have the best space to do it really.

          • Courtenay Bluebird October 2, 2012 at 12:38 pm

            AUGH! The uninsured thing can happen so easily. This is why I took my crummy, ancient one shot digital camera instead of one of my good regular film SLRs on vacation.

            When considering a darkroom space, I am looking for three things— a place where I can keep the temperature steady; a place I can make light-tight; and a place where there is/can be running water.

            That’s how I ended up using my bathroom as a darkroom in our last house. It was teenency! I kept dipping my hair in the developer. : D

    Cool (no pun intended). Fun to experiment with. I also appreciate the insights into technique. I hope it is your intent to do more of that. For example the long exposure shots of the beach in Bermuda were really nice … it would be nice to know settings used. Anyway … continued wonderful work. Have I thanked you for the follow at my blog (pairodox farm)? If not … many thanks. With someone of your skills watching I’d better work a bit harder. Planning on upgrading to the new Nikon D600 (a big upgrade … I’ve been using a point-n-shoot Sony HX9V). Any opinions? Wish me luck. D

    I’m not sure I have EVER purchased a photo from another (yes, trades, etc)
    I am sure I will be purchasing (at least) one of yours. I am drooling over the infared trees… the stand in the middle. 2193. Oh my gosh. Superb. I will likely have a dream about those trees tonight. Its like I took that photo myself.( I don’t quite mean that last sentence as conceited as it might sound)
    Good work. wow.

    First of all, thanks for the follow. I’m curious how you found me and I’m embarrassed by the quality of the images on my blog. Secondly, I love your infrared work. I first saw infrared photography about 20 years ago when I was married to a photographer and we saw a LOT of great photographic work within his circle of friends. That said, I’ve never read such a great explanation about the process of infrared. Thanks for sharing.

As an avid hiker my self we trailed our 1st gorge. however the mini cam I brought had a fatly battery. So the iphone was our only camera. It doest quite do the photos justice but with instagram out everyones a fake professional photographer now. UNFAIR! So yell me, while you are treading or climbing hills how much camera gear to you take with you?

    They look so good!! It’s almost like they are paintings. It’s so different from normal photographs… the absence of color makes they beauty of the shape of the landscape foremost… I don’t know the word that I’m looking for right now, but that’s what they are… the word I am looking for. LOL

    I get an eerie feeling from looking at these. It brings on a feeling of anxiety, like something bad is about to happen. Very awesome. I like art that brings on such a strong emotion!

    The first image, in your hands, is a kind of Delft poetry. The long exposure you’re forced to use created a blur in the leaves that I really like. It’s generous of you to take the time with the explanations.

    This is really a great site for photography. I like the fact that there is a lot of instructional information included in the posts. I admit that photography is probably my favorite creative media. I try to write and paint as much as I do photography, but it is hard. I hope you enjoy this Photographer’s journals as much as I do.

    I love these! It really reminded me of the poem in Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy “darkness won’t engulf my head, I can see by infrared, how I hate the night.” If you haven’t read it, you probably think I’m crazy 🙂 But I love your work, thank you so much for sharing it with the world.

    I’m really humbled that you ‘like’ my photo blog, and oh how I admire your technical and artistic skills. I love the effect of infra red and your photos are stunning. Alas – all I can muster is the occasional experiment with my Paintshop software on my digital photos …. not the same is it? Still – I am a ‘senior citizen’ and still learning. Sometimes frustrating but hugely enjoyable ! I use a little Canon camera as the SLRs are too heavy for me so I work within my limitations. God bless you Eileen

    Thank you for visiting my blog. Just starting everything and so much to do.
    I absolutely love your shots above, particularly the B&W ones. I am not up to speed at all in terms of optimizing my camera control neither utilizing programs or experimenting as you do. Trying to get my head around these shots… so was it effectively snow or is this white a result of the infrared filter use? This is another one to put on my research list and things to experiment. Thank you for sharing on your blog your comments on technic etc… Very interesting, especially for the ones in first step of photography exploration. Look forward to discovering more of your pictures/images. Thank you.
