    Glossy Contacts

    Hey all, I'm looking for advice and recommendations for a glossy paper for 4x5 contact prints. I am presently using Ilford MGIV RC De Luxe for this purpose and it works really great for matte finish. I'm looking for a paper that's glossy and maybe a little more contrasty just for a change-up.

    Any specific reason for using RC?

    Regarding the contrast, I am sure you know that the MGIV is a Variable contrast paper, and a very good one at that.
    If you are using no filters with that paper you will get a grade 2, with the proper filters you can get to grade 5, in my opinion that's plenty.
