    You could probably use any paper, as long as it measures 4 x 5 inches, and isn't too thick.

    It also shouldn't have printing on the back of the paper. Ilford is a good choice.

    Hi there,

    I would graded paper with lower contrast like #1 if possible.

    Another way to do it is to use low-contrast developer or to place a piece of lower multi-grade filter over the hole. Though with the second option, it will affect the exposure.

    Hope you will make some nice images.

    Warmly,
