I was a big fan of Plus-X for snow, light sand and other shots where I wanted to have highlight detail but also had some darker objects in the photo. Like a skier in darker clothing. I would always pull process myself (4 min Xtol + 4 min water soak, ie soft stop for Diafine like compensation) and usually could get a nice straight print with my technique.
Who has a film and developer technique for this type of subject matter that they have used and works well for them?
Maybe someone that shoots weddings where the bride is in white and the man in black?
In the past I have tested Fp4+, Acros , Fomapan 100 and Plus-X side by side. Plus-X won but there are dozens of different times, developers and film combinations that I can test out. I would prefer to start with a combo that someone has working for them.
