    This is my first attempt. I used Adox VC RC paper, Kodak 2D 8x10 with 5x7 back. It is a self-portrait, I'm afraid I flinched when I tripped the shutter. I also think I need to pre-flash the paper to reduce the contrast.

    OMG, what a fantastic first attempt! Congratulations! Keep us posted on the project, pre-flashing, exposure and all that. I love paper negatives. This is 1000 times better than any first start I ever tried.
