    Tonight I made the first print with the enlarger. And my first real analog prints in 40 years. Since I came back to photography I've only scanned and printed digitally.

    Very interesting. The reason I got the enlarger was to see the difference between analog and digital with my own eyes.
    So now I will print in both ways for a while and see what I like.

    Since I'm very proficient with photoshop there are many things I'll going to miss in an analog workflow. The ease of creating local luminosity mask is the first thing that comes to mind (And yes I know how to make them in analog)
    But on the other hand there are probably thing and properties of optical prints that can't be easily copied in a digital workflow.

    Fun days ahead
