Silly? Yes. That's what it has come to.
    Thus the need for a follow-up DVD titled "Don't Try This at Home". You could probably charge more for that one.

    Maybe I should run a super on the bottom, in little font:

    Actually, I don't dry out every print and test strip, because once I am familiar with a paper, I don't need too. Very rarely, when I make my first finished print, I need to go back and adjust for dry down.
    Understood!
    Basically, you take allot of breaks. Me too!

    I'll admit, I use a paper I'm familiar with and do very few tests for dry down. I use a, somewhat, dim light for viewing wet prints. I play music sometimes but usually I like it quiet when things are happening, the music can be distracting while I'm trying to concentrate - I wouldn't be listening much.

    I can see it now:

    Jason's (product placement) sneakers throw a red safelight backlit fine spray as he rounds the corner from enlarger to developer tray on the wet skidpad at speed...

    Another great vid on YouTube, Mr. B! You are one of the few of us that not only work behind the camera, kudos to you!

    I'm surprised it's visible so clearly on video! We always complain that the finest qualities of a print are barely visible on a monitor but that's clear enough for me.

    I guess I should make the test for myself to see the results. Good man.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    Uhhh.. I tried it, and while easily visible to the human eye, the video camera couldn't show it. So I faked it. :o:o

    Is this the scandal that ends my career?
