Special Effect Photography – 1983

I got this 1980s guide to using lens filters from a charity shop. Of course a lot of these effects can be created in Photoshop these days, but actually for a lot of them the analogue method creates something unique, so a large proportion of these filters are still on sale.

Unfortunately you can’t get hold of colour infrared film any more (unless you want to spend a small fortune on ebay on rolls that have sat in a freezer for 15+ years)- although Lomo do make a purple film that has a similar effect and doesn’t need a red filter. You can see the results I got from the roll I had here.

The most 80s example shot possible.

Where are you going with your fetlocks blowing in the wind?
