Now that summer is around the corner, I’ve been shooting through the rolls of Infrared film I loaded last summer. IR is useless in the winter, so if I don’t finish it by September, it will have to wait until spring.
I have 4 rolls of Konica IR 750 remaining from a block of 10 I bought off of eBay a few years back. It expired in 1990, but it has been freezer kept, so fogging is at a minimum. It’s my all-time favorite film, so naturally it’s been discontinued since 2005.
I plan to shoot a bunch of IR this summer. More to come…
I have a few more rolls of my favorite film, Konica IR 750, which was discontinued in 2006, in my freezer. I shot this roll over nearly a year, choosing each subject carefully while trying to remember how to use the stuff.
I took a chance on development. I tried a new (to me) developer called Divided D-23. It’s a variation on Kodak’s D-23, and was the version that Ansel Adams used briefly. I used it on a less precious roll of film before trying it on this. The results were stunning. Some of the infrared look is missing, but I think the visual is quite nice.
