F8 and be there! Well…sort of.
Pushing and pulling Kodak Tri-x, exposing, studio lights and a whole lot more are covered here.
For many years, photographers everywhere trusted Kodak Tri-x not only for its reliability, but also because it was simply just an incredible black and white film emulsion. Over the years it evolved and these days only the ISO 400 variant still remains. It’s a high speed film that is still in use with street photographers, documentary photographers, and well honestly a lot more than that. It’s prized for its look combined with it’s price point.
“When a photograph is captured on film, you are freezing a moment in time that would otherwise only live in your memory.”
“Since typical street shooters need to capture fast-changing moments, the faster the film the better.”
If you are just getting started in B&W film photography, before you decide which brand of B&W film to go with, you should first consider what your subject will be. This will determine which speed of film to use in order to have the best results.
“If you can smell the street by looking at the photo, it’s a street photograph.”
