I used to do high-end wedding photography, and I just did my last wedding this June. For B&W I shot traditional TMX 100 & 400 and then my lab produced B&W prints using Kodak Portra B&W papers which were processed in RA4 color negative paper chemistry. The results were the most amazing B&W prints I have ever seen with unbelievable creamy tones. I have never seen anything comparable with traditional B&W papers.

Unfortunately, Kodak has discontinued its B&W chromogenic papers. However, Oriental has a chromogenic B&W paper called Hyper Seagull B&W paper. It comes in either sepia or cold tone. Has anyone out there ever tried these papers?
