This coming weekend I have an artistic nude shoot. The model and I have been talking about doing this for a long time but we've spontaneously decided that this weekend would be IT. Usually, I shoot pretty much everything with Ilford HP-5. I know it pretty well and am quite pleased by the tones. However, never having printed anything large (20x30 and up) with it and with little time to test, the grain has me a bit nervous. Don't get me wrong, I love and embrace grain, but this time I don't want it to be a distraction. So I'm looking for recommendations of combinations based on these factors :
-Caucasian young woman, shot with strobes on black background
-Shot with RZ-67
-Ilford, Kodak or Fuji : this is what I can get locally and don't have time to have anything else shipped out.
-I have HC-110 and Rodinal. Would prefer to stick to these, but will consider other liquid developers if they are said to be *AMAAAAZING*.
-Will consider C-41 emulsions.
-Looking to get deep blacks and crisp whites.
-BW films I've shot before :
Ilford Pan-F 50 : Shot in studio, have had mixed results
Ilford FP-4 125 : shot it once, outside with a cloudy sky, seems okay, lacks a bit of punch in the midtones, might be the lighting
Ilford HP-5 400 : shot in natural or studio light, at rated iso or pushed to 800 or even 3200 iso, I enjoy this film immensely for it's silvery tones and deep blacks
Fuji Acros 100 : shot in studio, liked the tones but disliked the actual film substrate, it was really thin and flimsy
Kodak T-Max 400 : shot only once at 800, which might be the reason why I prefer the traditional-grain HP-5 when pushed
Any and all help will be greatly appreciated!
