Ian and Matt

I feel very strongly about the approach at the enlarger... I do agree that knowing the approach as a teaching tool in books is appropriate and valuable.

FWIW .. on very large projects that I sometimes work on I scan the work prints and put small colour prints into a very large sketch book. I keep track of the editions , who purchased , and in one of my clients case beside the picture I write things like, when asked to print this image again , insist on printing the whole edition as this image is extremely hard , and I do not want to do a one off print again of this image.
Or I will put down things like easy print. or hard print.

but never do I make dodge and burn lines as that should be second nature for me at this point.

I need to center myself on the enlarger , have my tools within reach and just get crackin.
