But, that's how I learn. I never thought of raising the aperture on the enlarging lens to increase the exposure time, to allow for some dodging and burning, until you just mentioned it. And now that you did, that's opened up an entire other thought process on how to make that print better. hmmmmm...... I may have to wet some trays tonight after work.
I never think of adjusting the aperture on the enlarger, because not once can I ever remember changing the one in class. And I constantly think about the exposure triangle when I'm shooting, I don't know why I don't think about it in the darkroom.....
