When I 'm out shooting I often shoot some very dark object e.g. Dark wood or some people vearing black clothes against a dark background or nightshots.
When printing the pics I like the black tones so I tend to not try to lighten things up but print dark. The people I show my pictures often goes
"Hmm good but its very black" or "wheress the midtones", "where's the greys"
All I do is print what I saw, well sort of.
So what do you guys and gals do when you decide how to print your negs.
Especially the ones with lot of black in them.
