i'm happy with my techniques and procedures for the time being, but it's expensive buying film and developing all the time.
i will eventually move digital for all the benefits it brings, but right now i dont have the £500+ that i'd want to get a decent one. i've just bought a kick ass scanner and then my main computer died so i had to shell out for a new box.
and i've just been on holiday so i'm properly broke!
I see you've taken a liking to infrared...that's what I like to see. It is definitely a fun way to look at things in a different way. What filter are you using to create the effects, because that would definitely be much more cost-effective than ordering the film, paying for shipping, and then praying that everything turns out OK. Great shot.
i use my digital.. and i bought a hoya innfrared filter #72.... my digital has a "nightshot" setting and you just pop the filter on and make sure the camera is on a tripod... you REALLY hsould get a digital camera..... saves money in the long run...
Agreed on the digital camera. We just got a Fuji S2 here at work to replace our D1 because we've been doing so much photography for brochures, and the image quality has improved tremendously with the digital SLR's. What I like is that the image size on the S2 is 9x14 at 100%, so you are able to capture more detail than a 35mm. Now I just need to find a way to save up a few thousand bucks.
shit cakes... the clouds are just spectacular in this shot o.O. looks like someone else is hoppin on the IR bandwagon *cough* x-horizon *cough* . Speaking of jumpin on the bandwagon? how much are infrared filters and are they available in most camera shops?
