Fountain Place, Infrared Angles

Fountain Place, Infrared Angles

Here we have master architect I.M. Pei’s Fountain Place, which stands in downtown Dallas, Texas. I captured this building with a Canon AE-1 on Efke Aura IR 820 black and white infrared film, Hoya R72 filtered. © Patrick Bresnahan

  1. I’ve said before that in general I’m not ‘grabbed’ by pix on IR film, but these are really great. The rendition of the sky is a perfect backdrop to the severe geometric architecture. Maybe I’ll try some B&W IR film.

    • Thanks, I’m glad this IR shot got your attention. I’m not sure if you’ve seen them, but I’ve got plenty of other black and white and color infrared photos on my site here. Feel free to check them – I’d love to hear your thoughts. Also, I think you should definitely give IR a go if given the chance. It’s really fun to shoot and get the ‘blooming’ effect on foliage. If you have any questions about how to shoot it, don’t hesitate to ask. I’d be happy to give some pointers if I can.

    • Yes, shooting film often gives us that old, antiquated look that I am so fond of. Thank you for your kind comment! I tried to capture all those sharp angles in Pei’s design, and I’m pretty satisfied by the results^^

I'd love to hear your thoughts! Please feel free to comment ~
