I am currently taking my first LF photography class at the local community center. Our teacher has told us that we are all to use Tri-X 4x5 for our projects. I asked if I could use something else and he told me that there is no other film that has the lattitude, and expressive look of Tri-X. He also that the masters would Never be seen dead without Tri-X.
At first I though he was kidding, but as the class went on he reiterated his position.
Is this the truth? Is Tri-X the best film ever made? Is it the only film the masters used?
In advance, thanks for your responses.
