    I've spent the last couple of printing sessions mainly doing snow pictures. I have found them to be very critical as far as exposure which really tests your burning/dodging abilities. I feel that my printing skills have improved as a result of just a few hours of working with these negs.

    Best of luck.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    I have shot many snow scenes and learned that good negatives will make your life much easier.

    Many people fight with the blocking of the highlights and try compensating by burning the crap out of em. I find developing my negs minus 25% of normal time keeps your shadow details also keeps the highlights from blocking up. To get that extra umph, print on a number 3 paper or use a vari cont paper.
