Ilford SFX200

Throwback to my first batch of film when getting back into it!

Throwback to my first batch of film when getting back into it!

When I first got back into film photography, I excitedly ordered a few different rolls of film from B&H. Alas, my camera I was so eager to use had a jammed shutter. Lesson learned that day: test the shutter BEFORE loading the film (duh). One roll of film I got was Ilford SFX200 because I wanted to dabble in infrared. While it's not a "true" infrared, it is more sensitive and used for creative effects. 

After about two years, I finally used this roll at the tail end of my trip to Chicago and then back in DC and on my first visit to the Arlington National Cemetery. I used some of the film without a filter but also got some great tips on filters to use for special effects by asking for input on Twitter. (Thanks, @ILFORDphoto & @believeinfilm for sharing my tweet and to all who responded!)

When using the IR720 filter, I metered normally with the filter off and then dropped the exposure five stops as my base. I bracketed my shots in most cases but found this base to be pretty accurate for my exposures most of the time. I really like the results, both with and without filters. I'll definitely try experimenting further with this film...
