One of the print-paper makers makes a positive printing paper, b&w. Seems to be this could be loaded into a large format camera and shot that way, developing it in trays in the darkroom. No negatives, no printing. I wonder if anyone has done this?

Yes, paper is not film however, it is very slow and much lower resolution. It works but the results are 'artistic'.

Ian is being too modest Smile too bad the photos are missing from his and others' earlier posts -- they were really good imho...

The message threads are still there, contain valuable information, but the images were lost during MFlenses server crash a while ago Sad

To see the threads go to http://forum.mflenses.com/search.html to search for "paper"

I'll try to find my paper negatives pics, there was a still life of a wine bottle that I was pleased with.

I did some experiments with this some years ago.
