Experiment is the word--paper isn't supposed to be exposed in a camera either, right?

    the very first photographs were paper negatives !
    it is just that glass and film became more popular ...

    WOW that is a great idea... (shudda had a V8! slap myself in the head)

    I have a plate camera, sitting here for years, I've been meaning to convert. But what the heck, shoot paper negs instead! DUH!

    I'm on it!

    Next weekend I'm going to load up my old Century 5x7 with some Ilford MGWT sheets. Fiber paper. Should be fun!

    Moderators,

    Any chance of moving this thread (or a copy of it) to the newly formed "Paper Negative" forum next door in the Darkroom section?

    Simons' post is way to useful for those folks just getting interested in this process.

    Could someone give a little bit more info on how to contact print a paper negative? Do you just take a paper negative print, lay it over some unexposed paper and light it up?
