Letter from the Editor: Kodak Tri-X Month

There was a period of time in the evolution of photography from film to digital where it was inevitable that perhaps every single film emulsion would disappear: but the one that stood out as impossible to disappear in everyone’s mind arguably was Kodak Tri-X 400. For years, this film has been on the front lines with photojournalists, documentary photographers, and street photographers helping them to capture some of the most iconic moments in history. Then it started to appear in the work of studio photographers. Indeed, many professionals and enthusiasts alike used Kodak Tri-X and as we transition into what I’d like to call the post-digital photography world, Kodak Tri-X has continued to endure in its use.

This month’s content is going to be dedicated entirely to Kodak Tri-X. And as a result, we’re giving away a number of rolls of the film in both 120 and 35mm to one lucky winner. If you join our Facebook Photography Challenge group, you can enter and have a chance to win.

Our look into the legendary film will include tutorials for those of you just getting into using film and talks with a few experts on the film. As always, I hope that you thoroughly enjoy the content this month.
