Also I encourage all printers to pay attention to the image emerging in the developer as dodge and burns become very evident and a lot of time wastage is avoided by visually SEEING the image before you even put on the room lights.
This is great advice that I hadn't always considered.
I was always paranoid of marginally unsafe safelight so mostly inserted the print emulsion side down until fixed.
Not dodging or burning where it is necessary is an artificial, conceptual, limitation. Sometimes the best prints are straight prints. But if a straight print does not give the best balance of tones, then one should (must, really) dodge and/or burn to get the best print. If, you don't care about making the best print you can, then sure, just make straight prints.
I ell about printing that I have one goal: to make the best print I can. Given the negative I have, that print may be in accord with what I intended when I exposed the negative or it may not. It does not matter. The goal is simply to make the best print I can.
