The film is great for taking outdoor and landscape shots with mostly water, trees, and clouds. You also need to use a red filter on your lens (I used the R25 from Hoya. Shooting pictures of people can sometimes results to having a glowing white complexion on them. It is said that an infrared objects have different focus from visible radiation. But being a lomographer myself I just taped the filter aroud the Minitar lens of my LCA and shoot.
The HIE can be developed with regular black & white processing. Keep in mind when using a filter, you need to push a bit when processing. As for me, I just put the ISO setting of my LCA on 25 and processed it like ISO 100. There’s no exact speed number for this film as the ratio of visible and infrared energy varies. Unfortunately the Kodak HIE has been discontinued from production. So you might have to do a little hunting to purchase it.

This is a tribute to a great Austrian sports photographer, Lothar Rübelt. In an era with no high speed films available, he was able to immortalize wonderful moments in sports - from diving to gymnastics and football. In creating this tribute, I took a series of photos of an amateur football match using expired black and white film developed using an uncommon chemical. Take a look after the jump!
Like a quick-changing siren, a sunset has fantastic showmanship. It may come in a costume of luminous yellow one day, and a daring paint canvas the next. And of its various looks, five have been getting the loudest applause from all over the community.
Mysterious apparitions and other inexplicable phenomena on film, or generally speaking, for that matter, are as highly debated topics today as they were many decades ago. In 1934, a certain Mr. C.P. MacCarthy of 15 Wilkinson Street, Sheffield held a lecture at 76 Clarkehouse Road located in the same city to "demonstrate under test conditions Fake Psychic Photography" before an invited committee. MacCarthy's demonstration was accompanied by a series of photographs titled "Psychic Photography From a New Angle."
