Hi Roger,

I’ve been taking 35mm B&W stills for the past year or so. I’ve experimented with Ilford HP5 film, but I found Tri-X to have a more pleasing and 'finished' look. Maybe it’s the higher contrast? I noticed on your contact sheets at the Beaford Archive that you were using Tri-X, but I remember seeing on this forum that you used Ilford for your most recent stills work. Any particular reason for the switch?

I'm definitely nitpicking here, but I would be interested to hear your experience and opinion of both 35mm films.

My photography was/is very 'casual' and I just used what was available.
