    Dual filtration does keep you closer on time but I found that it only kept me close enough to get a first test print.

    With a little experience with one color filtration I got to where I knew roughly how much to change exposure after a grade change. With just one filter it is much easier to remember what is what and to look at the enlarger and understand where I am.

    The OP hasn't come back to tell us his next step. Maybe he has gone away to read a book I look forward to his doing as we suggest and reporting total success or at least a vast improvement.

    I just wanted to get back to all of you with my results. Special thanks to Mark Barendt who made a little light go on in my head. This morning I followed his advice and got terrific results. Another poster sent a private message giving me some great information on contrast filter adjustments for my enlarger. It was indeed a matter of making those adjustments and experimenting. I still have a lot to do, but it is headed in the right direction.

    Just to make another comment. I have been shooting 35 mm film since around 1974. So, I am familiar with a lot, but still need to learn a lot. My foray into large format is exciting but a different animal. It is always good to read and take classes. In fact I have taken classes, watched videos and I have a very extensive library. All that is good. HOWEVER, it is always better to find a good and kind person to share their knowledge and experience. Books don't always convey things in an understandable way. Sometimes, just sometimes a nice person will be helpful and word things just right so others can understand. For those people I am always grateful and indebted. For others, well.....
