Some of the recent salt paper messages concerning density range of a
negative prompt me to ask a question about measuring negative density range.
Do you measure the area of greatest density (which may be an area such as a
spectral highlight that is totally dense and of no importance in the final
print) and least dense (such as an area of virtually clear film, which may
also be of no importance to the print), or do you measure the most and
least dense areas of anticipated significance in the print? I've usually
done the latter but when I see people talking about density ranges of 2.5 or
higher, I kind of wonder since this seems awfully high for the areas of
least and most significance as opposed to areas of greatest and least
density in absolute terms.
