    I am liking what I am getting with lith printing using the Moersch SE5 kit. The negatives I seem to like printing are the higher contrast ones.

    If one plans to lith print only for the short term, are there any adjustments to exposure or development one would make to "tune" the negative toward lith printing?

    Underexposure and overdevelopment will give you higher contrast. Also more grain however.
