Love the surreal feel of this.

Same photographer See all

Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken in New Salem, Illinois in roughly 1992.
Time
Judging by the shadows/lighting, it was probably late morning or early afternoon.
Lighting
From what I recall, it was slight overcast, the sky wasn’t very interesting and I wasn’t focusing too much on lighting exactly as I was on texture and an Old-time feel.
Equipment
This was shot on Infrared Kodak film pre-digital age, with a Canon camera and I believe a 50mm lens. I processed the film myself and prints, but can’t recall the process.
Inspiration
This was initially a trip to expose my son to the area and I was mostly trying to find interesting subjects to expose the Infrared film that was getting out of date. I was drawn to the details in the mill and the texture of the weathered wood.
Editing
All on film, processed conventionally.
In my camera bag
I am relatively new to digital photography- I am currently carrying a Canon 5D Mark IV, 24-105 and 100-400 lenses, and a NISI filter system. My current location is not much for landscape photography, so Ill typically rent a quality wide angle when traveling.
Feedback
Experiment often with various subjects and post processing effects. My experience with digital effects to render the old Infrared look has been disappointing, but then I’m an old dog! Happy shooting
