I have been trying to tidy up my lightroom catalog of my film scans.
I seem to have at least 15 rolls of film that I have shot over the last year that I have not blogged yet.
Most of the rolls I remember but this one completely slipped my mind which is strange as it was a roll of Kodak Tri-X I shot with my Leica M2 which is a film I have not bothered with for years as I never seemed to get very good results with.
To be honest this roll didn’t really blow me away either, I am not sure what I don’t like as it has plenty of contrast and is sharp which is what I like in my B&W … maybe it’s the grain which makes me feel Meh!.
My favourite image was the one where I managed to slip and fall over ( Tree’s)
I doubt if I will be rushing to shoot it again for a while unless I try pushing it just to see if that gives me something that I will like.
Here is the best of an ordinary bunch ….

I dunno, I think these are nice. Especially the ones of the Heidelberg cylinder. Such a rich black!
Some nice images Tim. I’ve fallen back in love with Tri-X after flirting with HP5+ for the last couple of years. I always shoot it at 800 or higher, as it gives me the punchiness and deep blacks that I like. I also use Rodinal as i find it brings out the grain. What developer are you using?
Tri X was my goto film back in the day, must have shot thousands of roles.
