Infrared Holga 8

By WilliamRoar
Today I was out in the Sutton Park & Erdington area of Birmingham on Sunday. I read an article about setting the custom ‘corrective’ white balance of infrared-converted cameras. Instead of the entire image being red, the custom white balance brings out more subtle colours. I also finished a roll of film (35mm #15) to see whether I have resealed the Minolta successfully or not - (developed tonight, middle portion of film mostly fogged, now added ridiculous amounts of foam)

I also found that with this camera, that there is less vignetting with the HolgaDirect kit, probably because there is more diffraction because infrared has a longer wavelength than visible light. This is a pretty sweet combination as both infrared and holga benefit from a bright sunny day - I should try some more if I have a chance.
