I'm going to be doing a shoot of building interiors, natural light only, and its pretty dark inside. Typical exposures are in the 30 second F8 range. I was planning to use up a box of Plus X in 4x5 that I have, but don't have the reciprocity data sheet.

Will I need to lengthen the exposure time and/or increase the development at these light levels? Artifical light isn't an option, so I'm stuck with these long exposures.
I've also got some HP5 if that will work better.

Craig,
Notice that for increasing exposure times over 1 sec. you will decrease, not increase, the development. Contrast inherently increases with the exposure time, so you counteract that with minus development.
