I don't mean to speak for Simon and I don' know specifically what he used.

Ilford HP5 can show this type of grittiness, especially if its pushed. All of the fast B&W (ISO1600/3200) films will show a very gritty grain.

If you want the speed but wish to avoid grain, Kodak's TMax 400 (TMY) and Ilford's Delta 400 are a smother grain variety of film.

yea, pretty much any film will get grainy when you push it a few stops! I shot Delta 400 pushed to 1600, (not sure if that was a good choice or not, since I don't do alot of pushing), the grain was very visible (especially since it was 35mm), but I enjoyed it, knowing that it was going to be grainy

It does look a bit like HP5 now that you mention it. I was referring more to the atmosphere of the picture rather than the film when I mentioned grittiness. For film I normally shoot Tri-X or Neopan 1600 pulled one stop. I'm kind of weird sometimes, I tend to add lots of noise to my otherwise clean 5D pictures.

Canon EOS 3 / 85/1.8 with Ilford HP5 400, f5.6 but not sure of Tv. You can see me in the eye ball reflections if you look real closely...

(okay it's non-alt gear...)

Thanks Daniel.

The second of your shots seems to be going towards swirl bokeh, but I think the first is far more interesting.

Minolta X-370, Rokkor 135mm f/2.8 @ f/2.8, Ilford HP5 (the extra grittiness here is mostly due to my scanner and not the film, which actually looks pretty fine grained in the print I scanned...I don't have a film scanner).
