  2. I love #1...looks like a flock of teradactiles!!!:biggrin:
    What ISO do you expose your HIE at? With my Canon A1 (which is what I normally shoot IR with) I've had to move all the way up to ISO1600 and shoot the meter in bright California sunlight (Hoya R72). I guess I could shave time off the development end, but shooting at 1/125 gives me a bit more freedom from the tripod. I found 5 rolls in Santa Fe a few months ago in a camera shop with '09 expiration for $15 each.:smile:

    Thanks Tim. Well, I guess they ARE related! :eek: 

    I generally set my meter to 500 when I shoot HIE. But then I live in Arizona, so there might be more IR in the air here... I generally use a #25 filter with it. The 5 rolls (of unexpired!) in Santa Fe is a good find! I have found that the film will last forever if refrigerated. I've never tried freezing it though. If/when you shoot any of it, be sure and share here!
     
  4. Chris,

    I have never shot any HIE or IR for that matter. The effect on the pelicans is cool, but the last photo has so much 'atmosphere'. I quite like it.
