    Once you get the B&W developing process down you should go shoot some IR film :naughty:

    You can get some really cool results, it's just kind of a pain in the ass.

    What kind of camera are you using?

    Everything on the right looks overexposed.

    Everything that looks white will be dark, and everything that looks black will be light when prints are made.

    no more HIE. do you need to use the special paper? i see that just about every infared film has a matching paper, and i cant imagine why

    heres my plan
    buy Efke IR820 film http://www.freestylephoto.biz/sc_main.php?cat_id=405
    load my camera in the dark since the film transmits the light.
    use the 40-43mm adapter and use my "Infrared Filter wavelength 780nm"
    canon 35 f2 lens

    no idea how to meter this! can i buy a meter just for this?

    I remember developing B&W film in my high school photo class

    I had to take the film out of the film canister, load it on the reel, and put it the delevloping canister. Everything had to be done in a black bag so light won't get in and I had to do it all by feel. We had to shake the developing canisters with the developer, stop bath, and fixer for a certain amount of minutes. Then rinse with water and dip in Photo-Flo.

    I just used some cheap Ilford RC paper and it worked fine. I didn't like any of my IR stuff enough to use fiber paper :o

    I'm not sure on the Efke film, but I used a 25A (red) filter with my HIE. Iirc, dark red filters are supposed to give more contrast than lighter reds or oranges.

    I've only used the in-camera light meter and it worked fine. Just be aware that depending on the scene and the amount of IR light, your negs could be over or under exposed. I bracketed all my IR film exposures just to be safe. You could also take a few test shots at the beginning of the roll, process them separately, and then push/pull process the rest of your film if necessary. . .but that's a pain in the ass :mamoru:

    Are you familiar with how to adjust your focus for IR film?

    The red dot is kind of just an 'average' focus point, different combinations of filters and types of IR film will be in focus at slightly different points. That's why some lenses don't have the dot. Which doesn't make any sense to me. . .even if the IR focus dot was slightly off, it would be a helluva lot sharper than randomly guessing your focus compensation or focusing for visible light :dunno:

    I set my ISO at 400 and never shoot with an aperture larger than f8. Obviously the smaller the aperture, the better the chance of your image being properly focused. Make sure to use a tripod if at all possible. IR film can be a bitch, so don't be discouraged if your first roll or two turn out like shit. I think I only had like 5-6 correct exposures on my first 36-exposure roll of HIE :o

    I was digging through my film stuff earlier and found a little surprise hiding in the bottom of my bag:
