My first week where a whole roll totally disappointed me. I rated the TriX at 1600 thinking it would give me more contrast, but now (AND FINALLY) I see how rating versus pushing are two totally different things. I lost my midtones in all these black and whites, plus the chunky grain is just too much for me. I can take some grain. I get it, it comes with film, but pushing will always make for more grain and these are just chunk-tastic. So even with my slight overexposing while metering, these all were fairly murky and not the crisp black and white I love. Only took four weeks to screw up, and another two+ to see that I messed up. Ah, film. You are a cruel mistress.
Thankfully, I'm keeping notes (and sometimes decent ones at that). I won't make this mistake (intentionally) again.
