Actually, the way to properly work the zone system, with sheet film, mid
you, is to place the shadow. Then determine the highlight in which you want
some detail in, and decide what amount of development to apply. To place a
mid tone is not a way to start. That's controlled by printing.

But, whatever turns your crank.
