And I am here where I wanted to be – Chrome Infrared Photography. With Fuji X-A3 full spectrum converted camera and Tiffen red 25A. Little bit of tweaking in Affinity Photo and voilà!
For me being an artist means, to be in a constant state of curiosity.
We, my hubby and I love to fly with our drones. Me, as this gives me birds eye perspective, something I wouldn’t be able to see otherwise. My hubby, he loves to fly.
It is still the same feeling I had as a child, wide opened eyes, trying to see the world, to take it all in at once. Fifty years later and it is still not finished, not all seen, not all known. There is magic everywhere. I am a believer. For me God’s creation is so wast and never ending, I’ll have eternity to continue exploring and even then it will not be finished. There is still and will be so much new to get to know and comprehend.
Infrared is new in our life. We bought converted Fuji Xa3 full spectrum. It means I can see the light waves that I can’t see otherwise. Suddenly every landscape that I photographed is changed, it is different, the same, but new.
And I didn’t even start to experiment with different times of the day, or even with long exposure.
Above photos are taken on a sunny day, around noon.
And this one is a morning photo, cloudy morning… The light is completely different.
I didn’t use any software manipulations.
It is the same camera, with analog Minolta lens attached and has Tiffen red filter 25A.
Recent trip and few panoramas from above and down below 😉
I hope you are all rested and relaxed after summer holidays, cos I’m not 😀 . It was an extreme summer, but I managed to create pretty good photographs.
Oddly enough, I took only two cameras with me – Konica and SeaSea Marine. Both simple, old, 35mm.
What I envisioned and produced will be posted in the next few posts.
Light leaks are fixed and Minolta is repaired. I am very happy about that. The test roll after repair is the one that I just received from the lab. Kodak Portra 160, it was shot on the St. Patrick’s day.
Some photos from that roll. Can you believe me that it was the 35mm film and that old Minolta that shot these photos?
