  1. Wonderful, very impressive!
    I tried a couple of rolls of this film this summer, but I didn’t nail the exposure so everything got heavily underexposed, but I will for sure try again.
    This looks stunning!

    • Thank you! Using infrared film definitely takes some practice. I’ve certainly messed up some shots. Typically, with a Hoya R72 filter, Efke Aura film needs an exposure time of about a second in strong, direct light at f11 or f16.

  2. @arnoldthearmadillo – that’s true! I read online that some snakes use can see infrared heat coming off of their prey. Also, mosquitoes can see infrared light as well. It helps them in finding veins, so they know exactly where to bite.

  3. Welcome! Thank you for subscribing to follow my blog. I hope you are encouraged, inspired and enjoy the photos I take of life’s events as seen through the lens of my camera.
