    Al, how is the grain with the Ilford SFX? I have heard conflicting reports. Thanks for your thoughts. Nice work, by the way.

    Re: How about some infrared images

    Merg, in examining a 16x16 print (made from a 6x6 neg) of the image I posted above I find that the grain is detectable in the clouds if you examine it closely, but not noticeable from a viewing distance. The grain is not detectable in the texture of the stone and vegetation.

    I like the tonality of this film and expose it without filters as well. I prefer to print at higher contrast, somewhere around grade 3 to 3.25, which for ruins gives me a look that I like.

    I hope I am being helpful.

    Al, thank you. That is what I was hoping to hear. I will give it a try in 120. Do you recall what developer you used? Do you think a Wratten 25 would alter the result significantly or would an 89B be necessary.

    I appreciate your help.

    Re: How about some infrared images

    You're welcome, Merg. I am happy to share everything I know. It isn't much, but anyway a start.

    I have been using the Cokin filters on my Bronica 6x6: 003 at EI 25 and 007 at EI 12 for bright sunlight. The 007 has a cutoff at around 720nm similar to the R72 (I think this is the same as the 89B) while the 003 is similar to the Wratten A (#25).

    I have been getting a nice Wood Effect with the 007 and the results with the 003 give a partial effect. In late afternoon light the shadow details get buried with the 007 but hold up better with the 003.

    Since it is easy to swap the Cokins in and out of the filter holder I often do an exposure with one filter, change the exposure and then do one with the other filter. On a few occasions I have preferred the 003 exposure.

    I use the zone focusing scales on my lenses to set my depth of field with a slight nudge to closer focus to accommodate the infrared focal length, keeping the aperture at f/16 whenever possible. Slow shutter speeds at an EI of 12, but not as slow as working with the MACO/Efke with an EI of 1.5.

    I have gone back to using D-76 for all my b&w films. Development is with a JOBO CPP-2 and I use the temperatures/times as cited on the Ilford data sheets.

    Based on my good experiences I have stocked up with 20 rolls in case they quit making it again. I hope you like your results.

    Al, I appreciate your time and information. I have everything but the film, and will take care of that detail this morning.

    Thanks again,
    Merg
