I went to this love Island outside the Italian coast in the Adriatic sea called IsoleTremiti. It is a small archipelago consiting of five tiny Islands surrounded by clear blue water. Apparently it used to function as a internment camp during the fascist regime under Benito Mussolini.
There were lots of broken and abandoned buildings around one of the islands and I went in to one of them through a hole in the wall. This is what I found. A house in decay.
All pictures where taken with a Fujifilm X-pro1 digital camera with a Fujinon XF14mm wideangle lens. Developed from RAW using Lightroom with VSCOfilm01.
I know this is borderline bad taste, but still there is something really special to Infrared photography. I hate it and love it at the same time.
I haven’t used my Infrared Hoya IR72 filter for almost a year when I had a sudden urge to show a friend of mine how it works. Since most modern digital cameras are sensitive to light in the infrared spectrum you actually only need to put a filter in front of the lens to shut out all light in the visible spectrum.
Why would you want to do something like this? Well… since IR-light get reflected by foilage and all types of plants with chlorofyll it will render landscape shots really surreal. Everything green will reflect IR light and thus pop out really strong in the picture. The sunnier the better so it is for once actually better to shoot in the middle of the day.
Since the cameras whitebalance totally freaks out because of the IR-light I have set the white balance to 2000K and also Inverted the blue and red channel to make it look more realistic.
All pictures where shot with a Fujifilm X-pro1 and a Fujinon XF35mm f1.4 using a Hoya IR72 filter. About 3-10 seconds of exposure and then developed from RAW using Lightroom.
