Adam Pierzchala: I’ve noticed before when using contrast adjustment in the brush tool, that in order to increase local contrast it is sometimes more effective to push the slider to the left i.e. into negative territory. This in my experience is especially so when working in b&w conversion of digital files (I don’t remember if I had the same experience with scanned colour neg converted to mono). Might this be an optical illusion because of the decrease in brightness when increasing contrast? Another good video by the way.
