    Every post is a weary desperate search for info on shooting IR film. There is tons of info on this forum, search it. Also there are tons of sites like alternativephotography.com and others that will guide you in your quest. so, get a solid camera to start (the older the better IMO) grab the HIE. get yourself a #25 filter and rate it @iso 360 meter TTL and go to town. Bracket every shot and keep a log if your new to the film it will help later. Develop in Tmax 1:4 with 1 inversion a minute for 6 minutes total @75 degrees. shoot in full sun if possible but dont be afraid to shoot in shade, there is IR light there too. landscape shots are awesome for IR but dont think you cant shoot anything else, try portraits and other stuff too. print it up and post the thing, let the world see the great shots to be had in IR. I love it.

    I'm puzzled, i've been racking my brain trying to think of a five letter word to put in front of footing that is offensive.

    The best i can think of is minge but that doesnt mean anything.

    Lets see if that gets bleeped. If so perhaps we can invent our own profain language!

    I'd think this term is from the way a ***** cat treads very carefully. ;)

    Yeah, yeah...it's not ***** as in *****cat that makes it bleep. It's the ***** as in **** or **** that bleeps it out. Some ****head though that **** would be ****ing funny if they **** all over a forum so they ****ing made us put these ****ty censors on here because it's a ****ing family site. ;)

    Guess its because its an American site.

    Is "the W word" swearing in the US?
    Someone was saying they listened to an American radio show on the internet and they were using it quite freely..........


    Anyway back the point. IR film is easy to use, its the fine tuning that is the key.

    Making sure its perfectly exposed and being able to judge the amount of IR you will get from various subjects.

    :lol: Great thread, dawgs.

    Dirt was a perfect IR student. He asked a bunch of questions, listened to what I said about development :mrgreen: did some studying on his own and then - poof! - he went out there, shot a roll and lo and behold - he nailed it. :thumbup:

    It can be done, oh yes, it can be done. ;)
