      Ilford SFX200 (semi infrared film) and a Heliopan RG715 filter. I’m really impressed with this film – it’s been sat in my fridge for months while I’ve waited for sunshine and blue skies to bring out the best of it. Trouble is, since I bought it it’s gone up in price to £9.00 a roll!

      Yep, I doubt I’ll be buying any more. Rollei IR400 gives better results and costs half as much so I think I’ll stick with that for this kind of work. It’s never that sunny here so I won’t have the opportunity to shoot it that often.

    Like this a lot John. I also have a couple of Ilford SFX in my fridge, but since I started to use Efke 820IR and Rollei IR, they sadly have been almost forgotten… I really should load them!! Thanks a lot for good inspiration! 🙂

    Great work John. I’ve often passed this spot and wondered how to compose the scene. You’ve provided the answer, a fabulous shot.

      Thanks Simon. The seafront at Maryport can seem a little ’empty’ sometimes but I’ve always liked this old and characterful sign.
      Thanks for commenting
