NEW YORK NEW YORK – Some details from the street today: a Madonna, dirty snow (a major blight a week after a snowstorm) and some balloons. All shot with my Sony A7riii and a 55mm Zeiss Sonar lens.
Day 3010 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this date exactly two years ago (day 2,280): Another old lens: an antique Carl Zeiss Jena lenses 28 mm f8.0 Tessar from 1937 (the lens actually quotes its focal length in centimeters – 2.8 cm. This was amazingly wide for its time.
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.
Day 2305 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
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.
