The Most Amazing Photos Taken With Infrared Film

Originally designed for aerial photography, the Aeroscrome III 1443 infrared film has had utilizations in various scientific and industrial productions, such as cartography, astronomy and the military. Created in th 1940s, this film’s sensitivity has been increased at wavelengths above 730 nm and has been designed to completely change the visible spectrum of colors. 

This film is however only in very large format, suitable for massive aircraft cameras. But the film is still a breeding ground for experimentation and enthusiasts who also want to enjoy the pleasure of aerochrome photography. Some even managed to cut the heavy rolls of film so that they are compatible with more traditional equipment. Yet, this film is becoming more and more rare, somewhat to the fact that is was discontinued in 2009.

We then find ourselves with photographs from another world, as if there was another reality visible only through this filter. From the glowing trees to the cotton-candy hills, everything is vividly intense. This is why many photographers have devoted themselves to the astonishing properties of this film. No retouching, no photoshop, the result is fascinating!
