Having recently bought a Fujifilm X-T2
(from those nice people at Park Cameras
), I sent my X-T1 to Advanced Camera Services
for an infrared conversion.
The converted camera was the perfect excuse for a photo project: London's Magnificent Seven cemeteries in the spring. So far, I've done four of them and the pictures here are from Abney Park, Brompton, Kensal Green and Tower Hamlets.
Luckily the light has been quite good for my trips – too sunny and the effect is too harsh even for me, too cloudy and there isn't enough IR radiation around, although the effect can be very moody too
Most were taken with the Fujifilm 14mm f/2.8 lens and a few on the 56mm f/1.2. The 14mm does not hot-spot, but the 56mm does at smaller apertures.
Raws were put through Lightroom and Silver Efex Pro 2 to give me the sort of result I loved getting from Kodak's High Speed Infrared - I kept grain levels lower than the film though.
I'll post shots from the remaining three – Highgate, West Norwood and Nungate – as soon as I get them done.
