    Agreed.

    To everyone,

    First, thanks for all the thoughtful replies. Its quite obvious to me that there is plenty to master in the subtleties of development and printing. Until I have a real dark room, (we have an upstairs area I am considering commandeering in the next couple years), I am focusing on negative development. Still, every bit of this thread is useful information for me.

    Thanks again for sharing your experiences,
    --

    These concepts can be practiced with any output.

    That said, until you get a darkroom I'd say sticking to the directions (to normal) is a good idea. It will give you good workable negatives for now and when you get the darkroom.

    Many of my pre-darkroom negatives are to put it mildly, a bit tough to print, because I wanted to make the negatives pretty, like slides. This means I need to use very soft printing grades and fight just to make acceptable, let alone good, prints.
