    "What I have in mind is a fairly intensive work flow chart to enable one to determine when the various methods are best used."

    I am absolutely interested in learning more about the fine print work flow and decision-making processes. I have only read about some of the advanced techniques you mentioned. I have little clue as to when to use them or apply them.

    Thank you for even considering such an undertaking!

    Blessings, Krystyna

    I know I might need some additional peripherals (hard drive, firewire or USB2 connection between the enlarger and the trays, etc.), but could you write this as a plug-in (ala Bloatoshop) for my D2V, Donald?

    I'm trying to determine if there is a need for a guide on this and whether I want to do an article on this. What I have in mind is a fairly intensive work flow chart to enable one to determine when the various methods are best used.
    Great Donald. I'd would love to see this. There's not enough articles as it is. As far as I am concerned please work on the assumption that you cannot insult my intelligence when deciding how simple to make the step by step instructions especially when explaining why things work.

    Sounds very interesting to me as well. The only other time I've seen other printing was a beginners class. Didn't know myself what I was doing so it was difficult to judge anyone else's workflow, and that being a group of (mostly) newbies as well. I really want to take an advanced class (no time curently), mostly to see workflow and the printing decision process as undertaken by good printers.

    I think this is a good idea. I have a copy of T. Rudman's "master printering" book but other people's methods are always handy to know. I have been printing for about six months now - using Ilford MGIV RC VC Warmtone - Multigrade dev. LPL C6700 englarger and am just getting to the point where advanced techniques would be of value. Look forward to anything you could do.

    I am just about to try printing (see my other thread where I asked which paper to choose), but I am sure this would be of great use once I have mastered the basics
