Split-grade printing and Leitz Focomat v35
I just started a photography class at my university and they have the Leitz v35 colorhead enlargers as well as some besseler standard enlargers. Thanks to this forum I discovered split grade printing and wanted to try it, but had a few simple questions. Would I be able to do split grade printing with the Leitz, or should I just use the besselers that have built in contrast filters. When i tried Les McLean's technique, for some reason I was getting really dark prints. Not sure if I was using the right filter/enlarger combination, or was just choosing the wrong exposure time from the test strips. Any advice would be appreciated, thank you.
