For the Love Of Tri-X / Post your pictures

The similar thread about T-Max is thriving and has so many beautiful pictures in it.

Post your pictures taken with the Kodak Tri-X here. Any vintage and developer will do.

I start first:
Kodak Tri-X in Rodinal 1:50





*Kodak Tri-X in HC-110 (Dilution H)

The last three have some issues, but your first shot is certainly a keeper, and it shows, to me, why I don't understand why anyone would shoot any B&W film emulsions BUT Tri-X, other than the fact the price is becoming a problem. I have an affinity for Tri-X in Mic-X, but that first shot looks just perfect. People who like the modern film emulsions won't like Tri-X, but the blacks you get from it are unique and deep. If not for the clothes, that shot could have been made 80 years ago. Great lighting.

I've shown this one before, but it's a good example of what a great portrait film Tri-X is. It was souped in D76 and shot w/ an ancient Welta Weltur folder w/ a botom of the line Cassar 3 element lens and guestimate scale focus wide open, handheld at 1/10 sec. Yeah, I missed focus a little, but I still like it. Wide open w/ a medium format camera leaves little room for error, but that table edge sure looks sharp :]

Great idea !

I like tri-x for the grain. One can make an image that is quite "graphic" and nostalgic.
These are from a 30+ year old roll I exposed in 2013.

TRI-X yes, I used to shoot quite a lot; but not recently due to price increased
How ever I'm ok with other options like hp5plus or kentmere400

Yep, sorry we haven't done any videos in a while. Brett and I both are super busy with work and other stuff right now.

The dilapidated building in the background is the old Michigan Central Railroad depot in Detroit. The picture is about five years old and all of the broken windows you see in the picture have now been repaired.

Interesting story about this pic. This isn’t a wedding photo. I happened across an outdoor photo class that was teaching students lighting, poses and that kind of stuff. I stopped my truck, waded into the crowd of students, and fired off several shots with my Leica. This was the best.

Started digging through older stuff. For the past few months I've been developing with DDX and shooting my Tri-X at around 200. These are from a few years ago shooting Tri-X at 1600 and stand developing with Rodinal at 1+100.

@Fujilove, kipkeston - Many thanks! I think Tri-X is a different beast in 120. The grain is
less noticeable. Not sure why.
