A sunny day today, and a good opportunity for a couple of infrared images using my classic IR combo (Leica M8 with Voigtlander Skopar 21mm f/4 lens).
I only did two photos and at post processing I really had a hard time deciding if I want to do a “false color” IR, a black and white version or leave it with the distinctive look of infrared. At the end I decided to keep all versions.
A serious frame error on the image above, the M8 does not have frame lines for the 21mm, so what I usually do is use the whole viewfinder as a frame, of course sometimes I don’t get my frame precisely. I was in a hurry and didn’t take a good look at my LCD screen, so I didn’t include the top of the tree. I really don’t want to add another external viewfinder to my arsenal (I already have the 15mm and 21mm), so sometimes when I am careless I do mistakes like this.
I tend to like more the false color version here, but I also kept the b&w one.
I am thinking of returning soon to this location to shoot some large format infrared film, its a good subject for IR due to the large presence of green color on this specific landscape.
