Work Prints

The most important aspect of printing is to be sure the print is not too dark or too light. The best way to accomplish this is to make two or more slightly different prints on the same type of paper with the same printing method. It is difficult to impossible to judge brightness any other way. One way to reduce time and the cost of paper is to begin with work prints. A work print is a print that is smaller than the intended final print and may also be not completely edited. Work prints can often stop being made once the brightness is determined or can be continued with more editing. Work prints save a lot of paper and time.
