Tiffen 58mm 47 Filter (Blue)

I recently bought a Tiffen 58mm 47 Filter (Blue) for use with my Full Spectrum Converted Pen E-PL1. Since getting the camera seven months ago (July 2013), I have been using the 720nm and 850nm ir filter for my Black and White IR landscapes.

I wanted to add some color to my IR photos, so I decided to experiment with color filters, and I’m starting with the #47 Blue from Tiffen. Here are a few example below.

I like the photos from the #47 blue filter, I still want to compare it with the #47b deep blue filter to see how they compare. I will post more photos from this experiment and I will continuously post updates about this experiment. You can also browse my Online IR Gallery here to follow my work.

    Interesting post. I only photograph IR with black and white film (Rollei and Ilford) and so your thoughts don’t directly apply to my own work but this is useful stuff for future reference. What I have been doing is experimenting with blue filters for black and white daylight film photography (and searching for ’47 blue’ brought me here) as I’m currently interested in a low contrast, bleached in terms of blues (e.g. sky), look that’s very much the opposite of using yellow, orange or red filters. I will be trying a 47 filter in future, currently I’ve been using a far less deep B12 blue.
