Zheleznica's fields and slopes in Infrared

Rollei IR400, shot with an IR720 (720nm) filter. I am generally pleased by the result, but could be better - especially that strong vignetting in one of the corners.

    How long did you have to expose for this?

    @cityandthesea Thank you for your likes. This is most probably 1/30 of 1/60-th of a second. The film is 400ASA, and even with an IR filter applied, in bright sun, you can still shoot handheld, provided that you have a relatively fast lens (F/4).
    If you shoot with an SLR camera, that does Through The Lens (TTL) metering, make sure you cover the VF window, since light coming from there will confuse the meter and lead to underexposure.
    The bad thing when using an SLR camera is that you can't see a thing through the VF, so you have to either use an external VF, or (like I did), compose without a filter and hold the filter with hand when exposing.

    I thought as much, all my IR has been digital thus far, and it takes 1-10 seconds of exposure. I saw people and cars in your photos and knew that there must be a big difference. I really appreciate you taking the time to respond. You saved me money!

    @cityandthesea Digital has an IR stop filter in front of the sensor. In order to make good IR with digital, it has to be modified and this filter - removed. Anyway, Rollei IR400 is cheap film and a lot of fun to shoot with.
    You will of course need an IR filter, preferably 720nm or so.
