ARCHIVE KENYA 45 – INFRARED GIRAFFE, NAIROBI NATIONAL PARK (MONO)

 

 


.

Maasai Giraffe in Nairobi National Park, probably in the late 1970s.  This image has been given the look of infrared monochrome film using Silver Efex Pro, and I think the resulting pallor suits the subject.  The giraffe looks just about natural, but of course all of the greenery – the bushes and the grassy plain – are very pale.

Technique: OM-1 with 75-150 Zuiko lens at 150mm; Agfa CT18 colour slide film rated at 64 ISO; Silver Efex Pro.

Photographer - using mono, colour and combinations of the two - many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous, trying new ideas, working in multiple genres. And I've a weakness of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    A very appropriate infrared rendering, and a great portrait.

  4. Amazing. That must have been quite an experience going to Africa to make images there. You captured this well. And this was before digital photography!

      Very glad you enjoy this, Chris – thank you! Yes, going to Africa was an enormous step, but one that I’m very glad I made – LOL! I wouldn’t have the energy or sense of adventure to do such a thing now!!! 🙂
