False Colour Infrared Images using Kodak E-6 Film

Kodak have now replaced their E-4 process colour infrared film with a new stock which can be developed using E-6. This basically means that it is easier to work with and much easier to get developed since the E-6 process is available from just about every colour lab.

The film can also be processed another way which gives 'more accurate' results which, I assume, are more like the older film. With E-6 processing the new film gives more saturation and contrast than before. The photos above were taken by rating the film at 320 ISO and metering through the lens using a standard yellow filter. An orange filter, as used with the older film, gave just too much red for my taste. In fact, as you can see, there is a superabundance of red here anyway. The film was then processed by my neighbourhood photo lab.

My thanks to Martin Wood at Kodak Professional UK for supplying the film prior to its general availability. It's not his fault that I took nearly six months to shoot the film and get it on-line. In scanning I have sometimes adjusted the gamma a little but the colour balance is pretty much as recorded. There is a skin-tone shot included if you're interested.
