into the infrared

The art of Film Photography has risen in popularity lately, and I chose to pursue this outdated way of capturing images like many others. The digital world has been taking these older techniques and replicating them in newer cameras, with 'film' filters on instagram to in camera 'double exposures'. There is even infrared version of digital photography as well, but that still has not been made to look like the old film. I found this guy in Germany selling loads of expired Areochrome infrared film used in arial surveys and decided to buy some, at around 33$ a roll.... This is medium format by the way so a roll runs around 10 pictures.

What intrigues me about this film is the ability to see the light we cannot with our own eyes, cutting out part of the visible spectrum with filters and capturing something that is completely invisible to us. The greens true beautiful reds and pinks, the water almost black or turquoise. There is no real advantage, and its surrealism but I love it, I just wish I could find more... 

 

At the Gillam landfill in Northren Manitoba

One night we went to swim at an old gravel quarry and this beautiful storm rolled in, the water became so calm before we were battered with rain and crazy wind.

The first shot on a new roll, too bad this exposure was cut off. You can see the way the film makes skin look, yellows come out, and black fabric turns different shades of red. 

We were just paddling a boat on a lake in Nepal when these three old women motored past us, one women was smoking with one hand and paddling in the other... I made my friends pick up our pace which I thought was pretty good so we could get a picture, all I had in the camera was infrared film, but I think it turned out pretty well.
