I love paper negatives. I know Joe Van Cleave is around here somewhere, and I learned what I know by reading his posts over at f295.org. He likes to use graded paper, but I've had a lot of fun with VC paper. I preflash the green sensitive emulsion and shoot through a yellow filter... they have a neat ortho look to them. I like the atmospheric feeling and aerial perspective that the strong blue sensitivity gives. I've had trouble with my contact prints being soft ( with both film and paper negatives ).. I think I need a heavier piece of glass. Have fun!
How important is the weight of the glass? I've been using framing glass and noticed some uneven softness in places
