    For my latest class excercise, we were asked to push a roll of Tri-X 3 stops to practice the pushing of development process.

    What results should I expect when compared to the same picture taken with a normally exposed and developed roll? ie. Contrast, grin, etc.

    Thanks!

    Quite pronounced grain.
    Fairly low shadow contrast.
    High highlight contrast.
    Higher than normal average density.
    Higher fog level.

    Next question please. ;)

    I've noticed all the development tends to make the negatives thinner so you have really short print exposure times.
