Making of “Mining Cabin Interior” (Fujifilm GFX100)

This image is classic still-life of a decrepit mining cabin.

Capture: Fujifilm GFX100 color capture
Conversion: converted to color, then B&W using Black and White filter layer
Post: none

I’ve been to this cabin before and always liked the vintage stuff, now becoming rare since the US Forest Service has taken it upon itself to systematically destroy (remove) similar mining history. But this cabin is on Bureau of Land Management land, hence it survives.

Every time I enter this cabin, I can imagine the miners living off canned food and enduring bitter cold and oppressive heat. Here wanted to capture the tight quarters, with the daily tedium offset by an radio tuner, that apparently still works according to notes left by visitors (you provide the battery).

The coverage explains all the issues involved in shooting for monochrome and in infrared. It is not a review of any particular camera or lens, though many examples are included.

  • Monochrome vs color cameras.
  • Post processing for monochrome.
  • Guidance on workflow for infrared, including black and white and channel swapping for false-color images.
  • How infrared renders, and why certain spectral cutoffs matter: false color vs black and white.
  • Image quality issues to be on the lookout for in infrared.
  • Numerous lens evaluations in infrared.

View an overview of infrared as well as filter spectral transmission plus examples from an optimal lens.
