I am trying to rationalize my darkroom processes. I have standardized my film and film developer (FP4-MPK). I shoot mostly landscapes (4x5) and kidís portraits (120). I print mostly 8x10s and up to 16x20ís. I normally use my base paper through the work prints and a display print. Sometime at that point I will try a different paper.
I was using Kodak Poly Contrast paper with Dektol. As I finished my last box I need to select a new standard.
What are the recommended paper / developer combinations?
Do you use the same paper for proofing and work prints as you use for display prints?
Has the longevity of RC prints improved? With the reduced processing and cost, can RC paper be used for work prints and then switch to fiber base for the final print?
