Infrared Victorian fair and Fabrics 6 by Okavanga Infrared Victorian fair and Fabrics 6 by Okavanga
Infrared Victorian Fair and Fabrics

Salford hosted a Victorian Christmas Fair at the Salford Quays this weekend with local produce from the Greater Manchester area on sale, and with local worthies dressed up in Victorian costumes. This was an ideal setting for candid shots, and I thought I would explore how the clothes people were wearing would show up on my converted Canon 40D camera, fitted with a 720 nm infrared filter.

Image 6 - The lady is wearing, in the visible world, black from head to toe. However, these infrared images show that the black fur coat is striped - not real fur. The dark stripes are where strips of "fur" have been sewn together. Black boots and black tights are seen as pale cyan, while the fur hat and fur stole, black to the eye, are dark grey - probaly a different synthetic fur from the coat. However, it is possible that it is real fur that has been dyed. The handbag is black in parts. The lady's hair is blond, but shows no tell-tale blue cast suggesting that it may be naturally blond.

See Images 5 and 7 for further comments.

Look at the guy on the right side of the picture with black hair.
It looks like he's eating an ear! :shocked:

The IR lens certainly gives a different view, Pamela.

i find the colouring quite interesting, as it is similar to the custom gradient that i apply to some of my mono images.

The colouring arises from the nature of the dyestuffs used in the clothing, Mike. Many modern fabrics are dyed with mixtures that absorb blue, and/or green, and/or red, but have no black pigment. So you get strange effects in IR.

Lots of connections, Mike. Fabrics and dyes were still big business unto a couple of decades ago.

Cheers
