This is a very general and subjective question but hopefully the members can have some fun with it.
I'm going to shoot a film noir project on 8x10. Most of the shots will be artificially lit, I anticipate, as that's the quintessential aspect to film noir. Some may not be lit, if exterior, but I haven't gotten there yet.
My question is which film stock would be the best option, given the style I'm trying to capture? Think "The Third Man," or "Touch of Evil."
Since it's 8x10, and b&w, there are really only three options I see to choose from. I'm excluding Kodak's 320 TXP, unless someone feels otherwise. It comes down to Ilford's, FP4+ 125, HP5+ 400 or Delta 100.
I've only ever used HP5+ and I love the results but I've never pushed it in this way before. I'm also a newbie when it comes to large format, otherwise I'd probably have answered my own question. Anyways all, what'd ya say?
