WARREN CONNECTICUT – More infrared. This time without the R72 filter, which means that the trees in the distance are rendered fairly naturally. I shot the same scene with the R72 (which blocks all visible light) but didn’t care for the all white rendering of the trees.
Day 2306 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – Today I shot winter landscape with my IR-modified Sony camera, using legacy Leica lenses and an R72 filter that blocks all visible light. I don’t like this combination with foliage – green foliage is rendered bright white, which is actually weird. But in the winter or on the desert, where there is little green foliage (especially in our Eastern deciduous forrest) it is really interesting. Here you go.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – So my Sony A7ii is back from being converted to infrared light. Its bandpass is designed to let in some visible red light which converted to black and white produces a fairly subtle infrared effect. Adding an R72 filter in front of the lens cuts out all visible light and leads to extremes looking effects. I’m shooting today with legacy Leica lenses and an R72 filter.
Day 2304 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – We had some old friends up as houseguests and put on a major meal for New Years Eve. Self-catering on a large scale is a bit involving, and I didn’t feel like photographing the party, so I made a few quick runs outside for views of a bleak day.
New Years resolution: I have a small collection (actually four) of Zeiss Ikon lenses from the 1930s. I’ve resolved to fill out some focal length gaps on eBay – these lenses sell for very little, and spend the month of January shooting only with Carl Zeiss Jena lenses from the 1930s.
Day 2268 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this day three years ago (day 1172): Luke Tanner’s Truck. I was obviously having a similar experience three years ago.
