No real point in who is best. A master printer will adjust the workflow to suite the client & or needs of the neg and not the other way around. It is also difficult to say who is exactly the best even at 1 point in time - note that with more experience the ability to print increases.There are people who are master printers but do not take in outside work or teach. Learn the basics - practice intelligently, keep learning if there is enough passion and talent you will get better. The passion and the need to learn will bring people who can teach you if you listen to their lesson. When you are ready - a simple cople of sentences advice can unlock a whole book's worth of information. If there is passion without talent - you may get better but slower. If there is no passion - watch TV is better for you - cheaper & less frusrating too. No one can make you great its not like some internal strength transfer process ala KFS (kung fu show).
