Leica R8 camera and Leica 90mm f2 Summicron-R series with Fuji Velvia 100F film

Here’s one for the old timers. I produced this image after a conversation with Michelle and Ellen, two participants in a course I’m teaching. We’d been looking at a variety of photographer’s websites and were impressed by one site, in particular, where the images displayed somewhat of a bleached faded color, reminiscent of how prints that were made in the 60’s or 70’s may presently appear due to the ravages of time, light, air-born pollutants or the type of acid-based glue commonly employed in inexpensive photo albums from days gone by.

Following on from our little exploration I decided to revisit a number of treatments from the old film-based days through a more contemporary digital approach. The motivation for today’s image is to re-visit the appearance achieved with a very unique product called KODAK Color Infrared film.

The above original film-based image has proven to be a popular seller over recent years. The image below is a Color Infrared treatment achieved in Adobe Photoshop CS4. Thanks to Michelle and Ellen for their interest and inspiration.
