    Unfortunately Kodak hasn't made EIR in a long time. I bought a few 120mm rolls via eBay a few years ago from a seller in Germany (at $25USD/roll!). If anyone does find this film for sale anywhere, let me know. I can't get enough of it!

    What kind of process did you use?

  57. mylatehope
    mylatehope ·

    I had my local lab (Renaissance Creative Imaging www.rciri.com ) develop the film as a slide (E-6). I hear you can also cross process the film.

    Sometimes I go to bed thinking about a song. Often I have dreams based on the lyrics of that song. I had some strange dreams after listening to The Beatles' Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds (who wouldn't!). I figured it was a perfect opportunity to shoot some images based on that strange dreams. I had some rare Kodak color infrared (Aerochrome EIR) film that I bought off eBay, that would capture the scenes from my dream about the song. I had my model stand in a relaxed pose, climbing the stairs as if she was going to float away, like she had in my dreams. I was very happy with the results of the whole series, but this is the strongest image of them.
