    Guide for making enlargements

    Just what the title asks, does anyone know of a good website that can show me the steps involved in making enlargements for negatives from making a contact sheet to drying the paper? I finally found a lab where I live that lets you rent their darkroom by the hour and I'd really like to get started ASAP. Thanks very much

    The book "Way Beyond Monochrome" or Tim Rudman's "The Photographer's Master Printing Course" are good books to check out. Sorry, I don't know a good website.

    The "Getting Started" section on Ilford's website is excellent:

    http://www.ilfordphoto.com/applications/page.asp?n=9

    In particular, the "Making a Black and White Print" link:

    http://www.ilfordphoto.com/applications/page.asp?n=34

    (be sure to review all the links thereunder)

    Try the August issue of Creative Image Maker. We had a staff article laying out enlarging basics and the Winter '10 issue will go a little further into controlling contrast and getting that print.
    Thank you.

    Start off by exposing and developing your film such as to be able to make a "proper proof" with minimum expossure for max black through clear film.
    When one has that down pat, the rest is easy; well, sort of.

    I cannot believe nobody has mentioned the standard Bibles of B&W; "The Negative" and "The Print", both by Ansel Adams.

    Perhaps not best suited towards a beginner, buy highly suggested reads as you get more experienced.
