Infrared etc

April 09, 2017  •  1 Comment

The weather is getting better and in particular the light has recently been more propitious to photographing on film again.

I have been able to carry out a couple of little essays into shooting with film. A couple of weeks ago I bought one of M Leclerc's pinhole cameras - Larouge 135 and have had a couple of goes at making it work. The first time I overexposed everything but on Friday (7 April) I did rather better taking some pictures in the late afternoon sun near the river in Villedieu.

Yesterday (9 April) we went to the Abbey of Hambye on a bright and decidedly warm afternoon. I took my trusty Nikon FM with a Rollei Infrared film and of course the customary red filter. In both cases I have been able to develop and scan the films but have not yet has the opportunity to print any of the frames properly. Some are promising so I have posted some of the negative scans on the site, in a new gallery.

In theory the scans should not stay very long, just until I am able to make decent prints and to display some of them. With the preparations for the Pont-Farcy club expo in May still in progress they will have to wait a little.
