So far I've been successful in pushing Tri-X to EI800 and developing in Dektol 1:10 for 7 minutes, inversions every 1 minute.

I was inspired to take on a high contrast look after reading a recent thread on Ralph Gibson and his work; I also am a fan of Daido Moriyama and like his use of stark contrast and lack of grays.
From what I understand, Gibson uses Rodinol to achieve his look and underexposes by several stops. I'm not sure what technique Moriyama uses.
On my results, I think I may need to push another stop into 1600 and increase development perhaps to 9 minutes.
