    step by step, how to print publication??

    Ilford has a great step by step, on how to process your first roll of B&W.
    Is there something like that available on how to print you first print?
    I have recently aquired all the "stuff" but I need to know the steps to success!!

    Check out Calumet's DVD of the Fred Picker videos. One was titled "Printing with Fred Picker." That should get you started. His assistant in that video, Bruce Barlow, has a wonderful book of CD titled "Finely Focused", an excellent read for every photographer. Check out the book at www.circleofthesunproductions.com

    You're looking for catalog #192-7328. The text on the cover is 'ILFORD MULTIGRADE PAPERS: A Manual For The Darkroom'. It pretty much covers it all. I just got this about three weeks ago. I have had 'Step By Step Into You Darkroom' for about a year or so now and it is pretty thorough as well.
    Thank you.

    Chris those are good for the chemistry part, what about "How to use the enlarger for Dummies"

    Are you anywhere near a decent library? There are many books that cover all of this.

    Slightly more on the technical side, I would suggest Ansel Adams' 'The Print'.
    Thank you.

    I was at the local library yesterday and have the Camera, The negative and the Print ordered along with a few other darkroom books.

    I am reading David Vestal's The Art of Black and White Enlarging.

    It is easier reading than the AA books, and full of great info on enlarging. Easily the best book I have read on enlarging.

    It's here, used, for a song: http://www.amazon.com/Art-Black-Whit.../dp/0061818968

    If you liked Ilford's step by step guide for film development, you'll probably like this one. That's all you need to get you started. I've only got one more suggestion to make. You don't need to waste whole sheets of paper to make test strips. 1/3 or 1/4 of a sheet will do just fine if you use it wisely. Just make sure you include the full tonal range of your negative in the strip. You might not know what I'm talking about now, but everything will be clear if you read the linked pdf.

    Ansel Adams' The Print is a good book. I have also a book from Kodak "Quality Enlarging with Kodak B/W Papers" and of course there is no more Kodak B/W papers but the book deals with a lot of aspect of B/W enlarging rather than just paper and processing which the Ilford literature addresses quite well.
    If you're interested perhaps I can scan the sections related to B/W enlarging only and not the paper section.
