I made a half hearted effort to split grade print. I thought it harder to determine exposure. The technique lengthened my workflow with no better results. The technique seemed somewhat gimmicky. I only burn and dodge to balance the print vs dramatic effects.

If a negative is not within a narrow range I go back and re-shoot. It makes printing easier. I burn up less time in the DR and have higher satisfaction. A twofer.
