autumnal landscape in infrared

Recommended Posts

these are my first attempts with infrarerd photography. I bought 2 filters, so that can cover the range of my lenses. For my MKII I discovered that only Novoflex adapter is lightproof, so exercises with this camera will follow later on when we get another series of nice lighting.


It seems that subjects can be found anywhere if light is contrasty enough. A different world of light and subject is waiting to be discovered and inviting for light adventures.


Have a look.

many thanks. I'll continue with that of course. The originals are much more detailed than this posted size. The whites seem here a bit burnt but they are detailed in my files. One can reduce the world to its designed basics. This is fascinating enough.



thanks for your time and looking at these samples.



thank you very much for your response and yes, you should again go back to the roots of light beyond our adapted eyes.

thank you for your kind comment from which I always benefit.

I was also surprised to find the effect so strong. But by compression the lights seem burnt which they are not in my original files. Perhaps one has to work on this before downsizing.

The structure of the landscape or any other subject comes out very clearly which I find very exciting.

      Does anyone know when the infrared marks on Leitz/Leica lenses were not used anymore? I am checking my own lenses:
      Hektor 13,5 cm (1956): yes; Elmar 135 mm (1962): no
      Elmar 9 cm (1937): yes; Elmar 9 cm (1952): yes; Elmar 9 cm collapsible (1954): yes; Elmar 90mm (1962, new version or II): no
      Summicron 50mm II (1960): no; Summicron 50mm III (1968): no
      Summitar 50mm (1948): yes
      Summar 5 cm (1937): yes
      Elmar 5 cm (1939): yes
      None of my 3,5cm/35mm lenses has the R-mark
      Best, Lex

      I think this is an impossible question to ask, without someone seeing it in person, but back in the 1960's and 70's I accumulated a small collection of Leica gear, most of which went into storage when I got into digital.  Then Leica came out with the M8 and M8.2, so I bought one as soon as I could afford it.  When I read about the problem the camera had with infrared, for me that was a bonus - I wanted to take infrared photos, and now I had a chance.  I did this back in 2009 and 2010, and then I mostly moved on to other things.  I've now got a M10, and all my other gear is put away in drawers, but I again want to start taking infrared photos.
      50 or so years ago I got what was supposed to be a Leica infrared filter that screws into my equally old 50mm Summicron.  There are no markings on the filter, but I've been using it all this time.  I know there are several filters I can buy nowadays, but my first question is whether anyone recognizes this as a Leica filter.  Did Leica make several variations of this, or was this "it".  
      It's nice that I can take hand-held photos with the M8.2 using this filter.  
      A related question is about focusing.  I read that on the 50mm Summicron, I need to focus normally, then take the distance mark on the lens and turn the focus adjustment such that this mark is now opposite the f/5.6 mark that's used for depth of field.  (from here:  https://www.photo.net/discuss/threads/why-no-ir-mark-on-summicron-50mm.162704/ )
      I'm surprised there are no markings on the filter.
