    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!

    Where am I now?
    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.
