    I've printed other people's stuff. It's a good learning experience, but I didn't really enjoy it.

    1. Have the negative be as good as possible, in an effort the keep the printing simple and predictable.

    2. An effectively dust free darkroom.

    3. I agree on the instruction to visit museums, see the work of high quality masters, both living and dead. For silver images, seeing Karsh's portraits and Paul Caponigro's mixed stuff has been inspirational. A theme show with old masterful things is nice too (such as the pictorialism versus f64 show the portland ME museum of art had a couple years ago) Along with this, the print exchange (at least on lfinfo) is good for contemporary comparison.

    Make negatives of some of the pictures you see
    Make prints from some of the film
    Repeat

    2. Figure out what the heck "fine print" means.

    I understand what you mean. When I was shooting with an RB67, I had multiple backs that I would use for N, N-1, and N+1 development. I believe it is still possible, even with 35mm roll film, but it does take more discipline to carry it out---and this is easier said than done, I admit.

    I'm afraid I'm guilty of this one. There is just no one around me that does this or knows anything about it. So I have no one to share my work with or get tips from. Sometimes I wish someone regional would be willing to visit me and watch me work in the darkroom and offer suggestions. That'd be amazing!

    Exhibition quality print. A print you're proud of. A print you'd hang on your wall.
