52 Rolls Week 29:52

More Infrared Experiments……and a Tale of Two Exposures below:

Camera set on ISO 50 @ f/16.  Some recommend that Rollei Infrared be exposed at ISO 25, but the negatives were so dense that they were almost un-scannable.  This seemed to work better…also using the 720 nm filter:  Left 2 sec & right 4 sec.


Our Neighbor’s wild grape vines grow over the fence……but we don’t mind.

Next week wee see better Infrared Outcomes using a new “old” camera joining the family.  Because I have one more camera than I need, but one less camera than I want…….

Tech Info:  Mamiya 6, Rollei 400 Infrared Film; Developed in F76 by KellyBlackDo and scanned on our Epson V700.

  1. I’m just now experimenting with different black and white filters. It’s one thing to read about it but another to actually do it. Infrared, I have tried it in digital with a converted camera. That was fun but got a bit hokey after a while….These are cool. I wonder what a portrait would look like….Looks like you could go a bit more on exposure? Not sure it may be my screen……Looking forward to your further experimentation. I am winding my year down. I believe I will continue, is that normal? We are a small but dedicated band….L.


    • The Exposure with the M6 were surprisingly off……..Next weeks images with a different camera and different exposure method are much better…….I think I’ve found my camera for the Rollei IR 400. SFX-200 is more forgiving, and I think I got that figured out in May.

      We have a converted Nikon for IR and I am thinking about having another camera converted to full spectrum.
