    Good point Uwe, and a handy source for dark/light sided material is 120 backing-paper. Ilford and Kodak, at least, have the number side of the paper in white or yellow respectively and this makes things much easier to identify when dodging.

    Not to hijack the thread, but I just thought I'd mention that it's always a small shock when I start to dodge/burn an 8x10 contact print and realize that I'm looking in the wrong spot to judge my lines. It's a little harder to figure out, but not usually a problem. I keep thinking that I'm going to mark the edges of my printing frame for reference, but I've never actually done it.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...
