Saginaw river walk on Ilford SFX-200

Shot on Ilford SFX-200 extended red sensitivity "near infrared" film. Bronica ETRSi with 75mm f/2.8 lens and Cokin 89B infrared filter. This near infrared film does give some of the "Wood effect" which turns the green of the grass and tree foilage white. Perhaps a little too much of it in this picture with all of the grass. Oh well, for my first try with this film, it works for me :-) Seems to look better on black.


It is kind of grainy. I have to do so me looking to see if this is normal with this film, or if perhaps I did something wrong in development. The negative looks good, so it may just be the way I scanned it. I will have to try creating an actual print in the darkroom to see how that turns out.
