Falmouth Town Landing in Infrared

Falmouth Town Landing

It’s tough getting to the water right now because everyone is looking to get out of their houses. The parking lots are filled! However, I did manage to get onto Falmouth Landing on Sunday morning where I took several infrared shots. You can find more at my on-line gallery.

It’s challenging to get infrared exposures right since light-meters measure visible light. Instead, you have to experiment and bracket each exposure. If the scene contains a lot of red light, such as during twilight, the film will be more sensitive. It’s also more sensitive in bright sunlight. In any event, if you’re shooting with film you might have fun trying infrared. You’ll need one of the red filters, depending on which type of film you use. One caution, if you use far infrared, you will have to load and unload your camera in total darkness. You can learn more by Googling “using  infrared film.”

I'm a retired medical sociologist from the University of Rochester. Climate change is one of the two great challenges facing humanity (the other is nuclear weapons). In writing about the impact of climate change I read reputable books and articles on the topic. So when I make statements about climate change you will see a link taking you to the scientific source(s) of the information I provide. As for my independently published photobooks, each has gone through several layers of editing and peer review for both readability and accuracy. This is not to say that everything I say is accurate. Even the New York Times makes mistakes. So, if you find something that is factually incorrect, let me know. I hope you find reading my blog a positive experience. If you do, please encourage your family and friends to have a look. You can find photos from my other photo work by clicking on the My SmugMug Gallery tab, above. Best wishes, -Steve
