Happy Birthday Tri-X!
Robert Hanashiro, Photographer
Los Angeles | CA | | Posted: 1:09 PM on 10.03.14
->> To commemorate the 60th birthday of this iconic film, we are holding the first in a series of what I am calling "Pop-Up contests". And it is only fitting that the first contest will involve Tri-X film.

This contest is only open to SportsShooter.com members in good standing. Details are in the current issue of the Sports Shooter Newsletter:
http://www.sportsshooter.com/current.html

Entries will be judged by members of the Sports Shooter Academy workshop. Prizes will be awarded to the top photos shot on Tri-X (and their accompanying essays).

Thanks to Jody @ Roberts Distributors and Jeff @ Adorama for their support of this fun, cool contest ... and for their continued support of Sports Shooter over the years.

Mahalo!

My hope is to continue the Sports Shooter Newsletter...

->> Thanks for the great stories by Burnett, Komenich, Schneider, Mendelsohn, Terrill McDonough, Dry and Seale. These stories brought back SO many great memories of starting out in my world of photography, later to be my career. I remember processing film in my high school darkroom (1962), making prints and taking "photo excursions" with my buddies. I also had a make shift darkroom in a spare bedroom in my parents house. This is where my love of photography began. I posted a photo on my members page of old rolls of Tri-X film that I kept. Take a look, and maybe this image will stir up warm memories for you too.

->> That was an excellent piece. Thanks for pulling it together Bert. I loved Tri-X but I will be honest and say I seriously hated the smell of fixer. 8)

->> Thanks Chuck! Stop bath was the chemical that did me in.

I miss the darkroom...but not what it did to me clothes.

This was a fun issue to put together... I hope to continue my quest...

->> I agree, great to read and reminisce! However, when Kodak withdrew from South Africa in the 80's, we used Ilford HP5. HP5 is kind of where I found myself... HP5 and Tri-X... just about the same emulsion.
The smell of a newsroom, mixed in with darkroom chemicals... mmh, memories... Deadlines... I remember having to process all my HP5, pick my best 3 shots, print them, caption them and have them up on the newsdesk within 30 minutes. That was a long time ago... in a galaxy far far away it seems!
Thanks for putting this together...
