I on the other hand prefer to have it "easier", especially when the negative size is 12x20. If my procedures are giving me difficulty I find myself spending more time away from the field, away from seeing things and making better photographs. "Easier" for me means the ability to focus on my vision, my composition because I have mastered my technique, my materials. I take pictures outside of my home and I strive to spend more time away from the darkroom.
