Brett Weston was noted for his great contrast & blacks... among other things. Did he expose to push the blacks down lower on the scale in the negs or get this working in the darkroom on the print? If it is done deliberately by placing shadows lower it isn't underexposure. Is this how he did it? As to contrast, exposure & development to pop the contrast which is almost litho work on some of the prints? I know later in life he used 6x7cm format and I am interested in that but mainly the LF contact prints he did.
