I have been wanting to try infrared film and these are my first attempts.
I decided to use my C330 because I can leave the IR filter permanently attached to the taking lens, leaving the viewing lens free for focus and composition.
Here are a couple of shots.

Thanks Mo.
I only took one roll - twelve shots, and some of these were bracketed exposures.
Here are a couple more.
Cheers

Nice again!
On my computer screen the images are showing up smallish. Is that the fault of my
computer?

Nice! Question: did you have to follow any special handling procedures when you were using your IR film?

Many thanks uddhava.
No, your computer is fine.
I have become a little precious about my images since some of them started appearing elsewhere without my permission.
The smaller size doesn't detract from the impression, but of course larger is better in some cases.

Thanks Michael.
Not really, simply load and unload the film in subdued light - I am a bit paranoid and do it inside in dim conditions.
I actually like this film very much. It is very fine grained and has a lovely tonal response.
I developed mine in RO9.

I am in the process of setting up a darkroom again so I will give it a go.
Film is giving me a lot of pleasure as I re-discover the joys of using it.

All the shots are great Tom, well done. I too am rediscovering the joys of film and recently infrared although in digital format.

Thanks Edgar.
I loaded a second roll into the Mamiya and spent a very enjoyable afternoon with my son shooting it.
I will develop it tomorrow all going well.
My son was kind enough to snap a piccie of me - jeez, I'm looking old

Nice shot but seeing a young person with a film camera is quite rare Sad

Thanks Excalibur.
Now here are a couple of interesting shots.
I was at the last frame on the roll, and the exposure was a long one. I pressed the shutter and when I thought that the correct time had elapsed and the shutter closed, I wound on the film. Strangely the shutter was still open so there is some blur, however another image recorded on the tail of the film. I rather like the effect and it is akin to deliberate camera movement during exposure.
Anyhoo - here are the shots.
I have given the last a tint that I think suits

Shots composed rather well and IR gives a distinctive "edge" to the pictures.

Thank you mmelvis and chhayanat.
I enjoy taking IR images and I have one in my mind that is waiting for the right sky.
It needs high cirrus cloud, but this is not common at the moment.
Cheers
