    RH Designs Vario, Split Contrast Printing, Dry Down Compensation

    Just getting started with my new timer. Inspired to buy one after I saw Les McLean use one at the Silver conference in Pasadena.

    Am I right to assume that I set the dry down compensation for the [COLOR=Yellow]yellow[/COLOR] exposure of the final print only? In other words, I should ignore the shadow exposure (magenta) and apply drydown compensation to the highlight exposure (yellow) only?

    Thanks.

    nope the drydown works on both soft and hard exposures.

    Jerold -

    It's usual to set dry-down on both exposures. If you set it on the soft exposure only, you risk blocked-up shadows - the reduction in soft exposure increases the overall contrast setting.

    Regards
    Richard
