I've developed some of my first rolls of Tmax 400 in Pyrocat HD. The negs look good, the prints less so.
My usual Bergger VCCB doesn't seem particullarly suited to tmax. I got better results from Ilford Warm tone multigrade but so far not as good as tri-x 320. Pictures lack good strong whites. If I up the contrast, I lose shadow detail. I developed for 10 min at 68F in a Jobo using pyrocat at 2:2:100.
Is there a paper that would be better with tmax? I'll also try a longer development time next week, I was a bit concerned about blowing out the highlights with tmax. Any suggestions?
