Shooting Fuji/

B&W "IR"

Dramatic skies Sep 2020

"Black & White Infrared" is yet another Fujifilm recipe courtesy of Ritchie Roesch.

Infrared immediately caught my attention. I can still see myself using yellow and red filters to get dramatic contrasts on my pictures using analog b&w film.

Ritchie points out that using this recipe "can be difficult to use". After using it for a fair bit of pictures, I can confirm that.

I find myself having to tweak white balance to avoid smearish, grayish, faded looks specifically for clouds and the sky. Yet still, this recipe has a resident slot on my Q screen, at least for now.
