I spent my darkroom time last night on split contrast printing with my color head and the difference is amazing! My negative are usually quite contrasty, but between the 4x5 neg and the split printing I'm getting extremely smooth skin tones. It took me a while to get it right (I was also trying to mess around with fstop printing, but became so befuddled I had to call it a night not to mention my homework). The difference is so great that I've even decided to use the portrait (more a 4x5 headshot) as my next postcard... I've been having trouble deciding what I should actually send.
