Yes, thanks -I found that was the appropriate ISO from a google search - I thought I'd try rating it 25 ASA or likewise and develop longer/stronger as then I reckon I'm getting into the exposures I need for successful portraiture (under hot lights).

Just trying to figure if the neg will be too contrasty (even for Pd) or lacking in shadow detail (if my theory is right) considering the push - sure I'll give it a go, but with 10 exposures to play with I dont want to waste them or the time of the sitter (and lugging all that gear around myself, it takes two tripods to hold it all up!) so any experience would be nice to glean info from ...

I'll PM jim - thanks !
