    What paper/process for greatest print DMax??

    I shoot night, and want to print the blackest blacks I can get. I'm comfortable making digital negs, so any alternative process is fair game too, although I'd just as soon stay clear of hard-core hazmat processes like daguerrotype.

    I believe that Azo is the winner for the deepest dmax. This is from what I hear and what I have seen with my bare eyes.

    If you're enlarging, try Maco Expo RF graded in Michael Smith's amidol formula for enlarging papers. Formula here:
