Tri-X 400 one of the most popular over films, not just in black and white, but of all film.  It’s known for its classic and absolutely beautiful grain that hasn’t changed since 1954 as well as its song contrast and rich tones.  It has amazing exposure latitude which allows it to easily push up to 3 stops and also means it does well with over exposure.  When metering this film, like most other black and white film, we highly recommend metering either mid-tones or shadows.  You don’t want to underexpose it.  When shot in contrasty light you’ll get dark blacks and bright pure whites.  It film is very versatile and works for pretty much any type of photography.  It’s commonly used for street photography and is a beautiful portrait film as well!

Tri-X has the perfect amount of contrast for me, wide exposure latitude, minimal grain, and it pushes well. Perfect for street photography and portraiture. One of the titans of the analog world.
