Black and white infrared film enables a photographer
to reverse the tones of common subjects. Water and blue sky appear black while
foliage turns snowy white. Special care is taken in both the handling and exposure. The film must remain frozen until several
hours before it's used, and it must be loaded and unloaded in complete darkness. A
filter is used over the camera lens for maximum impact. I've found the final
results to be well worth the extra effort.
