first infrared

I have been wanting to try infrared photography for years. I gave it a try a couple of years ago with my digital camera, but the results were disappointing. Recently I bought a few rolls of Rollei IR 400; here is the first result. I like the effect, I will experiment some more with IR in the future!

    Very bice indeed. I think you pick up really nice location and combination of the river and sky has very nice feeling. Congratulation!

    Well, that’s the thing with IR: you are limited in your choice of subjects: white trees, black rivers, dark skies, that’s all you’re going to get. 😉

    Oooh! Ten years later, I really like this ine too!

    Did you ever end up experimenting and doing more IR work?

    Jeff, not as much as I had planned, but I did some more IR, every now and then. You can check https://shuttr.net/archives/category/infrared to see more.

    Thanks, Jacco… I liked them. Too bad you didn’t do too much more, your writing with the images showed that you enjoyed doing them… Also, it was good to see your enthusiasm, posting and writing, you don’t do as much anymore… well, seems none of us does really… well, except for Richard as of late.

    Which also got me thinking as to when it was I began following your work, as those IR images were pretty much like new to me… I know I began following you via Richard… And I know Richard and I became acquainted of each other about fifteen years… wait I can check and see, hold on …

    … It was December 2007 when I started too (from me going in my iPhotos and seeing what the earliest shot of your’s, from your site, that I downloaded/screenshotted into my External Photos – work of admiration and inspiration from other Photographers) … a screenshot below if it works

    This one though, even though I didn’t comment on it ten years ago, was in my collection of your’s, so I did like it back then too 😉

      Okay, yeah, the code didn’t work

      Agreed, I looked back at some of these posts myself, and that was a time when not only I was posting more often, but also with more text. Richo is indeed picking up speed recently, and he’s the one still telling stories with each photo. Well, I’ve picked up just a tiny bit of speed as well, compared with 6 photos last year, I’ve posted “already” 3 this year, and it’s only March! 🙂

      Downloading/screenshooting photos, well, there’s a neat idea, to have some inspiration/work of admiration at hand. Never done that, but who knows, I just might start!

      On an unrelated note: iPhoto, yeay! Those were the good ol’ days. Then, someday Apple replaced it with Photos. Can’t get the hang of it. Don’t like it. Seriously dislike it. Tell me it’s just me. Tell me I’m doing something wrong, that I don’t use it the way Apple intended it.

      Anyway, I got sidetracked there. Found the screenshot that you couldn’t post here in my mail. I recognize most of my work, except for a few.

      I’m contemplating posting it as an entry, if that’s OK with you, something to discuss. Get in a talking mood again over here. 🙂

        Oh yeah, I never use iPhoto/Photos… it’s mostly just used as a storage home for non-publishing work o’ mine – photos of family, etc., and like I mentioned the (current count) 1,332 photos (that count is twice as large of my own work!) of other peoples photographs, or works of art that, as I said, I harvest for really liking and/or inspiration… and is the album I have selected as my computer’s screensaver – other people’s work.

        I can’t remember what iteration of my website in the past it was, but used to do something called xPoW, or eXternal Photographer of the Week, where I would just post on my website, a shout out to other photographers, with a photo of their’s, and link to to them (if they had one), and why it was I liked their work… I stopped, because even though I clearly stated that it was not my work, and was posting it on my website for altruistic, fanboy reasons, I constantly still felt the fear of being considered posting other’s copyright work… though I only recall it ever coming into play or an issue, with one photographer I showcased, and he said he would allow it, just as long as I credited him (as I already did, naturally), and provided the link back to his site (which again I also did).

        Anyway, of course you can post whatever I post… like I wrote it would have been on here anyway if I would have been able to do it.

        And yeah, looking at that screenshot of your attributed images I have, I thought a couple didn’t look like they were yours, or remembered being something of yours… like the group on a rocks edge? That photographer must share your first name… Hm… well, no, … I just went back in and not as lazy this time, typed in your full name, instead of just Jacco, and I had attributed the same photos as being from you… so I was either on crack when I downloaded them years ago, and just felt like making you the photographer of any random photos I found, or you have a dark spot in your memory of your own work X-D

    Okay, even typing the img src="..." didn’t work … Okay, so I’ll just stop typing these endless banal comments!
