Choosing a Film & Developer

How to decide on a Black & White film and developer combination. Unlike color, where a standardized chemical process is used for all films, black and white photographers can choose from a huge array of developers. Different developers give different contrast, grain, image sharpness, and film speed. I explain it in this tutorial, and I tell you what I use and why.
