3. not all photo paper is the same

4. not all paper developer is the same

5. I’m not anal but it looks like I like getting certain things right with photographs

6. contrast filters are a thing… a big thing, hahaha

7. not sure I’m a fiber paper guy…

8. the cost of paper might be the end of me, hahaha

9. I never really doubted it before but now I truly appreciate the art of darkroom printing and those who’ve mastered it

10. I get hungry after 6 hours in the darkroom… really hungry

11. I really need a good easel or need to make different masks out of mat board

12. I have just enough room to print 16×20
