Infrared images with the Leica M8

A few new infrared images for today’s post. My most often used combo was once time employed for IR photography (Leica M8, Voigtlander Skopar 21mm f4, B+W 092 infrared filter).

Since it was a bright sunny day (unfortunately, no clouds, which work great for IR images), I managed to shoot handheld at f5.6 and speed about 1/24. For a couple of shots I had to set ISO to 320 which is the maximum for a clean IR image, at least on the M8.

Some focus bracketing was necessary, since I had difficulties finding the properly focused image on the ancient LCD of the Leica. On my computer screen of course, it was easy to choose the sharper photo.

    Beautiful images, I also use the VS 21mm on my M8 for general IR landscape. Where do you place the infinity mark to get the best focus? I just don’t seem to get my images sharp.
