    Just get a starter pack of the Lodima. I find it much easier to print on than the stuff made for enlarging. I contact print up to 8x10 and find it hard to beat. Why wait until your are "better at all this"? Just do it, you WON'T be sorry.

    I'd hate to waste the paper, learning on it. But, maybe I will get a starter pack and try it out.

If you like Kertesz's prints, fiber paper is going to look closer to what he printed with. I'd recommend any of the eastern-European brands for a good start. I like the look of glossy fiber paper. A bit of selenium toning can add that special look.

    Good luck and hope to see your results.

    Have got some RC paper on the way (Fotospeed) to start with as I've doing very little printing before but will probably be onto Fibre Base paper as soon as poss. Ta for the advice.
