    I tend to follow the manufacturer's recommendation unless I have a really good reason not to. I reckon they know their products a damn sight better than I do...!

    More experienced photographers / printers work out their own variations over time. I hope (one day) to do the same,

    Annemarieke,

    yes normal dektol (or I really like a product called "Ultra black", not sure if available in Europe)..

    try it- the "bake-n-dip" sometimes is interesting for "high-key" images, increase paper exposure time approx. 200%, develop 5-10 sec in dektol- quick to stop bath!

    However, this is something SILLY :roll: I do only in an experimental sense looking for special effects, as I said for most work I have standardized on 2 min.

    Another - slightly safer - way is to dilute the developer more. Instead of "dipping", "soak" it in developer diluted to 10-20% of normal strength. With most developers this reduces contrast, and many will give warmer tones.
