I had the chance to attend a talk yesterday with LIFE photographer legend, John Dominis. I had some Tri-X loaded in my MP and was able to grab a few shots. The lighting was terrible, especially since it was hitting from directly from above and blowing out his 88 year-old head of beautiful white hair. 88 years old, and has lived the life that many of us have fantasized about.
Tri-X shot pushed to 800, developed in D-76 for 10:30, with 2 easy inversions every 60 sec. Lens was 50/1.4 lux pre-asph at f/2 and 1/15 shutter speed.
