[QUOTE=Maggie O;215348]Thanks, Steve!
Here's a couple more IR Kodak HIE shots:
IR Sky, Omaha, NE, January, 1987
IR Mom in the Living Room, Craig, NE, January, 1987
Very eerie look to those.
(I used to do some photography for a personal injury law firm, back when I was in college. Lots of pictures of wounds, stumps, and other assorted unsightly stuff. Then one of the attorneys discovered that if I used color IR film, the scars would look worse than without. Anything to increase the value of the claim, eh? )
Two recent photos.
Arthur's Seat Edinburgh:
Trellick Tower London:
Yes, those are really lovely! What is Arthur's Seat?
Here are some recent film ones. I have been going back to some older lenses and cameras for a softer look lately...
I have been using them in particular to photograph some parts of the Icelandic landscape. One of the things I like about certain areas is how quite and empty they are -- how the landscape is almost featureless...I kind of want the photos to have the same starkness.
These were with an OM1 and 50/1.4
And here is one with an Iskra, which is a folding Soviet 6x6 rangefinder. I got it at a flea market in Estonia...
Maggie! I join the others! those are great images. Your grandpa looking for the right tool reminds me of my own grandfather - he was a blacksmith. I more or less grew up in his workshop, but the man packed his tools and business in before I was into photography.

Hill overlooking Edinburgh.
>>And here is one with an Iskra, which is a folding Soviet 6x6 rangefinder.
Sounds very industrial . I think "iskra" means "spark" in russian.
Interesting idea with the uncoated lenses - love the one with the blurry road in the lower rh corner. I imagine the effect comes across better a big print.
>>Awesome Photo & PP!
No PP just Tri-X and some sharpening.
That Cedar Bowl photo is great Maggie, keep going back to it.
Love the Warmth & Casualness to the Family Shots

Here's some XP1 landscapes (one with some Nikkor lens flare, too!)
The Bertha Road and Our Creek, Craig, NE, January, 1987
Creek and Bridge, Craig, NE, January, 1987
Tree In The Pasture, Craig, NE, January, 1987
Tree With Bonnie, Craig, NE, January, 1987
Grove, Craig, NE, January, 1987
All of those were taken in our never-tilled bit of prairie that we used as a pasture.
Thanks, Lloyd. And I've learned a lot more about how to "print" these negs since I took them, so the files look a lot better than the wet prints I did at the time.
Which got me thinking- if my work ever became collectible, the prints that I consider inferior would be the ones worth the most money, because the market prizes prints made closest to the time of exposure, not prints that artists consider their best work. Crazy, innit?
A few more old photos, one from an apartment of mine in Minneapolis and the rest at my old friend Dan's barbershop. The window shot is XP1 and the barbershop is Tri-X.
Emerson Frost, Minneapolis, MN, 1987
