As a fine art photographer using PV 2010, it was suggested by someone I consider an expert (the chair of the photography department at the Rhode Island School of Photography, Steve B. Smith), to reduce the contrast substantially, to about -20, and increase the Black slider several points to 5 or 8, depending on the photograph, naturally. This proved to work very well for my work.
In PV 2012, does this still stand? I did some experiments, and it seems to be slightly more complicated with the introduction or purposing of additional sliders.
Does anyone have an thoughts or suggestions on how to proceed?
