My Sincere thanks to all who responded to my "paper negative" question!
I will take everything into consideration and slowly proceed into an area I have never been.

John and DannL a special thanks for time an effort to help me learn this new
(to me ) thing. DannL your examples are wonderful! They show as much detail and information with your paper negs as many of my photos on film do. I did find the apple. Next time move the apple just a bit further away from the banana, as it's tiny curved shadow caressing the side of the banana gave it's location away.

Looking forward to trying printing paper rather than film!
