For years I used graded paper only, but now am using more VC paper, especially when I need higher contrast. I try to avoid low contrast on VC papers due to the unevenness of the response in the mid-tones. I like Galerie grades 2 and 3, and used to use a lot of Oriental G, Slavich, Kentmere, etc., In VC I am now using the Adox 110 and the Foma 111. I like both of these. When I use VC papers, I still use the same printing techniques as with graded papers except I use intermediate filtration instead of split-developing to get intermediate grades. I will, however, burn an area with a different filter. Basic exposure, and dodging is done with one filtration; no split printing.

Best,
