I would like to have a first, very very basic question that i am currently thinking about:

How to you estimate the exposure time for enlarging?
I mean, i will do a test stripe to find out what the perfect exposure time will be like...but how to you set the first time to start with?
Or the time for contact prints?

Maybe i am overthinking something here (or just being really stupid) but i seriously have no idea

I am using Ilford Multigrade Paper...

Thanks for your help!
pure talent!
my first 10,000 prints were way off.after that experience and economic need replaced the guesswork
