KODAK BLACK-AND-WHITE FILMS FOR EXISTING LIGHT Although human eyes perceive a world of color, some of the most compelling photographs ever made have been made in black-and-white. For the existing-light photographer, high-speed black-and-white films, such as KODAK TRi-X Pan Film, facilitate working in low light of uncertain color quality.
Most of the Kodak black-and-white films suitable for existing-light photography with a hand-held camera are inherently fast films. The broad exposure latitude of many popular black-and-white films allows capturing contrasty and/or unevenly lighted scenes that virtually defy optimum rendition on narrow-latitude color-slide materials. KODAK TR1-X Pan Film, at ISO (ASA) 400, offers the existing-light photographer high film speed, excellent image quality, and complete freedom from concerns about color balance. Some of the most dramatic and expressive existing-light photographs have been made in black-and-white. Black-and-white films generally have more latitude for overexposes than for underexposure.
Excessive overexposure will lead to loss of definition and in-creased graininess. For all practical purposes, you can ignore concerns about the color quality of ambient light. And if you need an even higher film speed number than the film provides with normal processing, you can easily push-process most high-speed black-and-white films so you can expose at twice the normal ISO (ASA) speed with minimum loss of quality simply by extending development time. From an aesthetic standpoint, working in black-and-white offers unparalleled opportunity to control the image through coordinated adjustments in exposure, processing, and printing. KODAK Tri-X Pan Film For all-around existing-light photography, KODAK Trig-X Pan Film, ISO (ASA) 400, offers the combination of high speed, fine graininess, and very high sharpness, plus great exposure latitude, and a “look” that makes it the primary black-and-white film of many photographers, regardless of light level. For many years, because of its excellent quality and versatility, it has been the film of choice for photojournalists and sports photographers who must capture moving subjects in light ranging from desert glare to coal-bin murk.
