I think I am going to have to follow Thomas' suggestion and determine in a more accurate fashion what it is that will work for my project. I know I could go with a faster film to increase the contrast but I was hoping to do the project all with the same film/developer. That might just be an unrealistic expectation.
Are you correcting for reciprocity failure for those 15-30 sec exposures? If not, you will underexpose and end up with flat negs.
