I would look into contact printing at first, to see what you have on the film. There are many issues to deal with when printing, as there are when taking the image and getting it onto the film. Contact printing with 8x10 is very easy, as mentioned a glass plate, enlarging paper and the paper chemistry is really pretty basic stuff. You still need a minimal darkroom with simple supplies to make it work. You might have a look at Edward Weston's printing setup for an idea of what he used to make his prints. tim
