I just started printing some initial tests with the Ilford Multigrade Art 300 (MGA 300) paper. My normal papers are MGIV FB and WT. At least on my first two prints the exposure times have been very long as compared to my fiber prints. Is anyone else finding this to be the case on a consistent basis? For example, the same negative required a time of 50 seconds for the MGA 300 vs. 20 seconds when using MGIV FB paper.
If anyone else has experience they could share I would appreciate it.
