    Off hand I'd say you will find no printing techniques used
    with Graded paper which are not equally applicable to
    use with VC papers.

    So, VC paper users should also take note. My impression
    after reading many posts is that at least some VC users
    believe filter manipulation to be the only method for
    controlling over all and local contrast. Dan

    Actually - wouldn't 'the negative' be FAR more applicable to the general concept of printing on graded papers...? I mean- it's the whole raison d'être of the zone system to begin with...!

    You're right Sparky - Adams' "The Negative" and Mortensens "On the Negative" are essential, too - but the print books are also useful.

    Now that I've mentioned Adams and Mortensen in the same sentence (twice), will the thread explode?

    Well - I was just saying that if you already print VC papers successfully -that a book like 'the negative' will probably help you with contrast control more than the 'printing books' might.

    Fred Picker and Ansel Adams

    I would second the vote for Ansel's entire series as well as Fred Picker's Zone VI Workshop. The Picker book is also compact and a good read.

    Sincerely,

    Hany.
