I mistakenly exposed a 120 roll of TRI-X at 100ASA. Has anybody got developing info for this situation using Rodinal. I did bracket my shots so a solution for 100ASA or even 200ASA should get me some printable negs.
John Cook said:During 40 years of commercial photography I routinely over-exposed Tri-X like this to improve shadow detail and get important objects out of the negative's toe. Especially with dark products like fur coats, leather wallets and farm animals. The only drawback is slightly increased grain.
Some will automatically advise you to reduce development to lower density in the highlights. But since less development means lower contrast, you will be stuck with the additional problem of flat, gray negatives.
Tri-X has enough silver and a sufficiently wide density range that the highlights will not block up with two stops extra exposure (as they will with Tmax, etc.) So use your normal development and enjoy some decent shadow detail for a change.
Short answer: it's not a problem.
