I agree with you totally. But, given the title of the thread, this is what can add to the danger of the minefield.

I spent most of today at GEH helping two interns learn how to conceive and design a new emulsion. This has resulted in many fine plates, and many fine prints. We didn't mention the zone system one time. We didn't even mention H&D curves. That will be for the near future though.
