How to estimate exposure times?
New to the forum and wow, this will be fun! So much information to read that will help me getting started! :)
I would like to have a first, very very basic question that i am currently thinking about:
How to you estimate the exposure time for enlarging?
I mean, i will do a test stripe to find out what the perfect exposure time will be like...but how to you set the first time to start with?
Or the time for contact prints?
Maybe i am overthinking something here (or just being really stupid) but i seriously have no idea :)
I am using Ilford Multigrade Paper...
Thanks for your help! :D
