Rollei Infrared is the optimum creative tool, this 35mm film can be shot in two different ways.
First - as a straight black and white film ISO 400, with a slight ghostly result due to the infrared sensitivity. Alternatively you pair it with a deep red filter to disproportionately focus on the IR spectrum!
Trees will be bright white, people will glow, the sky will be dark black, and you will be rewarded with some of the most dramatic images straight out of the camera. Note that this will increase the necessary exposure significantly (it will respond at sensitivity of ~ISO 12-25)

As a company Rollei is most famous for it's cameras - particularly the iconic twin-lens Rolleiflex - but this German-based company founded in 1920 has also had a long history of making B&W films. Unfortunately the parent company didn't survive the digital revolution of the 90s/00s but the brand survives today under licence to AgfaPhoto - who continue to support emulsions old and new.

I shot this at 400asa with a red filter. The camera had light leak problems but still produced some really interesting images. Turns a blue sky black and really highlights cloud in a blue sky. I think I would have more idea of the sort of subjects to shoot next time. I shot at f16 and f11 to get the depth of focus for the infra red light and this seemed to work well.
A great truly Infrared film when used with an R72 filter, however also a fine B&W film without.
My first shot seemed to have what looks like dust specs on it (last image uploaded without the r73 filter), however this could be my film labs scan!
really cant think of any faults on this film. buy some play around with it, whack on a red or orange filter have fun.
Even though you have to use an IR filter and learn the technique to shoot infrared, it's well worth it. The images I got back were amazing, I immediately bought more.
I had a roll of this in my Wonderbox a few years back. I bought a 720nm filter to use with it, and as a result had to meter at ISO 6. Most of the pictures were taken using a tripod and a hand held light meter. My manual Pentax lenses have a mark for correcting the focus with IR film. The workflow was, therefore, set-up the shot on the tripod including focusing; carefully attach the filter, adjust the focus to the IR mark, meter, then take the photo with a cable release. The results are a little unpredictable with the greenery sometimes coming out white, sometimes a darker shade, and the blue skies sometimes almost black, sometimes more mid-grey. As I have only shot this one roll, I need to experiment more (and perhaps make some notes!) to get the most out of it. I really enjoyed using it though, and once I have worked my way through the mountain of film I have waiting, I'll shoot a few more rolls.
