    finally started making prints

    Finally got an enlarger and started making my first prints, using the Ilford printing guide. I've attached a couple of shots from the first run. I haven't tried any dodging and burning yet, but I kind of like the standard print. Definately looks a lot better than my negative scans.

    There will be no going back now. Maybe try two prints at half a grade then one grade more and see what you think?

    My best piece of advice will be to not be afraid to come back to a printed negative in future to see what else you can do with it.
    Thank you.

    Congrats. The more you print, the better it gets.

    I will try messing around with contrast more next time, but I currently like fairly low contrast pictures.
