I was wondering if anyone has experience contact printing with enlarging papers as opposed to Azo. I am playing with Azo at present, but am curious to hear what others may have experienced with graded and variable contrast enlarging papers. A specific question that comes to mind is the usefullness of variable contrast papers for contact printing a pyro neg. I know that the stain of a pyro develope d negative is supposed to mimic the action of a mc filter, especially in the hig hlights. I wonder if this holds true when contact printing (without any filters) ?
Thanks, Paul G.
