    It doesn't matter. Not even a bit.

    Either you're good at making photographs, or you're not. The film? Not worth thinking too much about.

    I don't know that it matters a great deal to me. I do prefer "conventional" emulsions better than t-grain, but I do like both. With experience, I'm sure I will learn which to use depending on what I am looking for in the final print, but I will still use both - just in a more deliberate manner.

    True... I've found that the times I've not liked the results of new (to me) materials, it's always because of a lack of effort, and work, on my part. When I don't put in the time, I don't get the results.

    I use two black and white films - Plus-X and TMY-2.

    When my Plus-X is gone, I'll transition to T-Max.

    Both Plus-X and TMY-2 appeal to my sensibilities. I will have to work a bit, but I'm sure T-Max will be fine too.

    If I may amend this statement just a bit, Thomas... The film is not worth thinking too much about "once you get to know it". It's at this point that you can concentrate on making good photographs.

    There is no film that is natural or has integrity. Closest thing might be moss on the north side of a tree.

    I suppose a good analogy would be is it OK to have a tooth filling or a face lift?
