I am developing my AZO in an amidol recipe. I normally will just use a water stop bath as recommended by the TF-4 fixer instructions.
But then I became interested in utilizing a water bath to help control contrast. Should I really be using a stop bath? Since I'm using an alkaline fixer like TF-4 does it matter what kind of stop I use?
Also, can someone turn me onto some information explaining the nuances of the water bath using Amidol and AZO?
