This image was shot with a Mamiya medium format film camera using a special film. Ilford SFX 200.SFX 200 Infrared 35mm Black & White Print Film - Ilford has over 100 years of expertise in black and white photography and continues to develop outstanding products for both picture taking and print making. SFX 200 is a medium speed panchromatic film which has peak red sensitivity at 720nm and extended red sensitivity up to 740nm. Wedge spectrogram to tungsten light (2850K). This film produces dramatic, infrared results which will offer the photographer new creative dimensions.

When using SFX 200 film with a red filter, the film is exposed using only red light. Areas which reflect little red light, e.g. the sky, will be low density areas on the negative and dark areas on the print. Areas which are excellent reflectors of red light, e.g. most green foliage, will be high density areas on the negative and light areas on the print.
