    use the different contrast filters when printing my b&w's. I'm using Ilford multigrade IV RC paper. Is #2 normal contrast?? Or is #3 normal? I haven't printed since last year....and last night was my first time back in the lab. So which number filter would I use if I wanted just a little more contrast than normal? :scratch:

    #2 or #2.5 is usually recommended as a starting point. Going higher raises contrast. Going lower reduces contrast.
