A Touch of the Macabre

A Touch of the Macabre

This was shot in a super old cemetery outside of Dallas, TX with a Canon AE-1 on Efke IR Aura infrared film. What is it about black and white infrared film that begs to be shot in a cemetery? © Patrick Bresnahan

    • Yes! The tree was really fascinating.. It was split right into two pieces with branches hanging down on either side. The whole cemetery was downright creepy and oddly beautiful all at once.

  1. Oh I love this! Cemeteries are one of my favorite subjects though we don’t have many interesting ones in Seattle. I love the decision to shoot this in IR too. I will make every effort to get out my IR this weekend!

    • Yeah, I’ve been aching to shoot more IR lately but we’re smack in the middle of the rainy season here in Korea. It’s not exactly the ideal time to be shooting infrared. Anyhow, good luck on your next IR shots!

    • Thanks, I appreciate your comment! I shot this two or three times at different shutter speeds / apertures. Looking at the negatives and scans, I found this one to be just right, with a nice glow to it.

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