As to printing bad negatives making me a better printer, IMO, only in the sense that I learn how to shoot better next time.

hi mark

i totally believe that if you can print bad negatives, you will become a better printer. the best way i learned how to print
was by printing bad negatives, and printing things that weren't supposed to be printed
because if you can print something that is bad, you will always be able to print something that is good.

it boils down to practice, and knowing your materials ...
