Here is a video made in the darkroom and which shows the whole process for making a print... Or at least the process I follow :-) For more info on my darkroom setup and equipment visit the Darkroom page.
Here are scans of the three prints discussed in the video:
For fun here is a side by side of the scan of the wet print and a scan of the negative. The negative was scanned with the Nikon LS-2000 scanner in RAW and levels and curve was adjusted to provide something close to the print ( I am using using Darktable). I did some local adjustments to brighten the face on the negative scan which is "equivalent" to the dodging I did on the wet print.
One thing that I noted is that there is way more dynamic range in the negative (or on the scan of the negative) than on the wet print. In terms of making a digital file, the scan of the negative seems to be the best solution since it is much simpler and provides more information to work with. In terms of actual prints, the tones, contrast and black look better on a wet print than when printing with my cheap ink jet photo printer. But some real comparative testing is needed to figure out by how much and if it is possible to correct for it.
