Some more from the second roll of infrared film shot in the Mamiya 645 Pro TL.
Along Bulow Ditch with IR
This was taken with the sun at my back and I can see that this is ultimately the result I’m looking for. That almost surreal other worldly look to the leaves. You can see the different way that different leaves reflect the light and provides many different layers to this image. I really love the way this one turned out.

This next image is interesting and shows dramatically why the angle of the reflected light to the lens is crucial.
Frosty Trees in Florida?
This view took on a frosty appearance because this was taken facing Southeast. The sun was high in the sky, putting it just to the East while I was facing South.
At this time of the year in Florida the sun is almost always slightly South and never directly overhead. I still really love the effect that this gave.
I took a photograph several years ago of this same view which we did in Lith. Apart from the Lith processing, the only difference to the image is that the tree limb in the very front has since broken. Next time it will probably have fallen off altogether.
I’m loving experimenting with this film. The ethereal images I am getting are right up my alley.
This was the first time I used the opaque filter, the R72. Focusing was done without the filter on the lens. Once everything was all set up, I added the filter. I caught myself each time trying to look through the viewfinder only to find that with the filter on I really couldn’t see anything at all. That was pretty strange for me because before I press the shutter I’ve always double and triple checked my focusing etc. Couldn’t do that this time though. 😉

From a soggy wet Florida, have a great weekend from both of us.
