As I have been receiving quite a few messages and questions on the films I use and the way I expose them, I have put together some more information: I mainly shoot two film stocks: Ilford HP5 and Kodak TriX (both 400 ISO box speed). My preferred film for shooting at 400 is Ilford HP5. For pushing to 1600 I actually like to use Kodak TriX just a tad more, the look it gives seems slightly smoother and more detailed to me. Nevertheless I also shoot a lot of HP5 pushed to 1600 but never shoot TriX at 400. I've never been able to develop it to my liking in my standard Kodak HC110 developer.
