One of my first few pictures. Hopefully can post some more pictures soon
Wow there's some grain! It's cool though
What are the details of the shot? ie. film type etc. And yes, welcome!

this was tmax 400.

It does look quite grainy, i think this may be becuase I enlarged to about 12" size but only used 5x7 paper to get the part of the image I wanted. I also exposed for a shorter to time to get detail in the shadow (this makes the picture more grainy?)

Is this is a scan of a print?

I never thought of Tmax as a grainy film, Tri-x is where i go for grain, but nice result (exposure looks like it was quite a bit under)
If only digital noise looked as nice as grain can.

Isn't that one of the things that film still has over digital? Be careful what you wish for!!

that and better b/w IMHO
I still like the look of transparencies, but they require a lot more care in exposure than digital
i shoot some colour film, but mainly for quick turnaround to test new cameras since i'm so slow on my b/w film processing ( 15 rolls pending currently really need to get to it)
I love grain on b/w but was never a big fan of it on colour

A scanned underexposed negative that has its light levels pushed up also pushes up the the grain with it and it is way more visible. And now crop the area you're scanning and it's like scanning a smaller format making the grain yet more visible. And the aliasing effects of scanning tend to increase the finer grain some too.

It sure produced nice grain on this, very different to a TRI-X or say the Ilford hp4 (which I used to use a lot in the 70s as a bulk load film)
I'm sitting on a whack of legacy pro (rebranded fuji neopan) none of which i've got around to processing or scanning
I'll fiddle with it a bit and see what happens
next round of film tough I'm back to 2 b/w films in bot formats Plus X and Trix (in 135 they will be the rebranded stuff from freestyle) maybe with a bit of Adox 25 for the medium format and Ir for the medium format
