A few more IR shots

Recommended Posts

More from Combe Gibbet / Buttermere (the one on the Berks/Wilts border not the lake) .  Same setup, Bronica ETRS and Rollei IR400

A old oak (40mm lens, 1/8s, f/8)

A stand of beeches --  a very strong Wood effect on this one. (75mm, 1/8, f/11)

The gibbet itself -- it was used only once, in the 17-century, to display an adulterous  couple who had murdered her husband. It can be seen for many miles around. (40mm, 1/15, f/11)

And a tree and puddle (40mm, 1/8, f/8)

1, 2, 4 then 3 for me.  The first one is particularly attractive.

Really like # 1 James...  Super the way the branches  form a lovely filigree  pattern ...and  the path and fence line  draws us into the picture ...Initially i wondered about the  branch in the top left  but it really does help with the balance and doesn't detract the eye as i imagined it would ..,  Nice set   but #1 is the one for me..

Number one is the pick for me - lovely perspective, leads my eye beautifully into the beyond.

I've always had a liking for I.R. and I love the name Combe Gibbet, too.

I had the same thought when taking the shot, but since the 40mm is the widest lens I have for that camera [*] I couldn't get any closer without losing too much of the target tree.

[*] I'm not sure that there are wider lenses -- if there are they are rare and expensive.

I'm still very much learning what does and doesn't work. That's only the third roll I've shot -- great thing about doing IR on film is you don't need an expensive camera modification and the Rollei film is a similar price to most B&W films.

I also took a version of #1 on normal film, with a green filter (which also usually separates foliage from bark), but it's nowhere near as convincing -- partly the light direction and also the haze which was a major problem that day.

An interesting bunch of images, I'm liking the first 2 they remind me of winter scenes for some reason.

I think it's the white grass. The last one is the one I thought looked like a snow scene.

A very interesting set of images, 1 being my overall favourite 😀
