A Brief break from Black and White Photography

Yesterday, I took my Sigma SD10, which is still a great camera, and removed the filter from in front of its mirror. I then spent the day shooting with, and without, a Hoya R72 Infra Red filter attached. It produced some outstanding results. I particularly liked this shot. The web version really doesn’t do the colours of the image justice.

The Red Carpet

I think this will be the way I will use the SD10 from now on. – As a sort of experimental/infra red back up camera. I have trips to London and Tuscany booked for the next month and am looking forward to trying this combination out.

What was interesting was that the Hoya filter could be discarded and the camera would produce very interesting images. I found without the Hoya the best way to expose was to dial in a negative -3 stops. I will probably come back and post more images as they arrive.


 These are two more from that session. The images themselves are not much to look at but they are not bad considering I didn’t venture out of the house!
