Surreal Landscapes Taken Using Color Infrared Film and Lubitel Cameras

We are all admirers, lovers, and seekers of color infrared film, for a reason: they turn ordinary scenery into mind-blowing surreal landscapes! Take a look at some impressive infrared photos taken by our super lucky fellow lomographers using their Lubitel cameras!

The photos you are about to see will definitely amaze and bewilder you. They’re probably something you haven’t seen before; maybe you’ll find them even more impressive than slide film photos. They were taken by some of our fellow lomographers who were lucky enough to score some rolls of the rare Kodak color infrared films.

Color infrared films are sensitive to infrared light, and produce interesting, even surreal false-color photographs depending on the filters used (or if filters are even used at all). Part of the cult status enjoyed by Kodak’s color infrared film is the rarity (they have been discontinued many years ago), and the fact that there is still no digital camera that can replicate the results of these rare films.

When paired with a good analogue shooters like the Lubitel cameras, you can get jaw-dropping, mind-blowing photographs like these:

Thinking of trying your luck in hunting for the remaining Kodak infrared films out there? Once you’ve gotten your hands on some rolls, you might want to check out the articles below by our fellow lomographers:
