What does black and white infrared look like?
The signature look of the black and white infrared film is that all green foliage reproduces as white, while other colors, such as blue skies, reproduce as very dark, almost black tonal areas – it’s a very dramatic look. Realism went out of the window to be replaced with a surreal, dream-like tonality that was very characteristic of the genre, and often a favorite process for landscape photographers. That said, the black and white infrared film was also quite effective when shooting portraits, producing porcelain-like pale skin tones.
