vpwphoto,
do you have one of those contact printers with the series of light bulbs so you can
burn and dodge, or do you mean a contact printer / contact printing frame ?
i have always wanted one of those multi bulb printers but unfortunately
my printing space is cluttered and filled with other "stuff"
i'm sure using a contact printer with paper negatives would work well too (wishful thinking)
... at this point, my only contact printer is 2 sheets of thick glass
and a light bulb it works but it isn't very sophisticated !
