    Print as normal with #2 filter, then 15% more thru the #5. This will effect the blacks and very dark tones only.

    15% may need some adjustment.

    And please let us know how you make out with this. It's always good to see someone try something new.

    As someone already said (and you realized), too difficult for a start. I would do this one by preparing a dodging mask and print the negative with the mask as a sandwich, but I don't recommend to try masks to get started.

    As far as recommendations for text, I can suggest two of my chapters:

    http://www.darkroomagic.com/Publicat...stopTiming.pdf
    http://www.darkroomagic.com/Publicat...icPrinting.pdf

    or one of the best books for practical B&W doging and burning of all times:

    Larry Bartlett & Jon Tarrant, Black and White, Fountain Press, 1996
    Larry Bartlett was a professional printer. The book explains how he produced involving, expressive prints from other people’s negatives. The preliminary chapters look at the basics of darkroom design and equipment and moves on to explain how each of the featured prints was coaxed from the negative.
