    Re: Medium Format Infrared Images

    For years and years have shot IR with film. Made all the mistakes one could make but still had some keeper IR negs. Then several years ago had the opportunity to use an IR converted digital FX camera. Technology makes advances all the time and in this case, for me, was a total game changer. Results were totally equal to shooting IR film but so, so much easier and cheaper. Opted for purchasing an IR filter for my camera instead of a much more costly IR conversion to my FX camera. Never looked back. And this coming from someone who shoots ULF and prints Pt/Pl hand coated prints. Just my 2 cents. BTW: If you are shooting IR film, I totally admire your commitment to the process.

    Outstanding IR, Maris. 'Been tempted, but it looks expensive & the learning curve would surely burn though some expensive film before any joy. 'Very beautiful work.

    I only tried one roll of MF IR, Rollei IR400 back in 2009. It didn't work out so well, but I got a few good shots. Mostly, I shoot 4x5 Efke Aura now. I've long since sold all my 6x4.5 gear anyway.

    Thanks HiHoSilver and jon.oman. Infrared film is fun for those with a high tolerance for failure. But there is no self-blame because you don't exactly know what you are going to get anyway.

    Maris - Like others, I admire and enjoy your IR images. As seems to be the case in many of my interests, I'm late to the party. I'd love to give IR a try, but the beloved Efke film is no longer available and I'm not sure there is a suitable alternative. For now, I'll continue to simply enjoy from afar.
