I have a question about the four quadrant reproduction curve graphs. If it is desired that the mid tones in the final print are more contrasty than the shadows and lights how do we choose our films and papers?
What I mean is it a mistake to look for developer and film combinations which are straight. In combination with paper and developers which are rather straight as well.
This leads me to a thought which I have been having for a long time now concerning curve shape but I may mention this later.
