Large Format Photo Paper - first tests

A quite interesting experiment, using photo paper instead of film on my smallest 4 3/4 x 6 1/2 inch large format camera.

I need to do more tests and might write an article about this interesting technique later.

    Which photo paper? I am asking because ordinary graded paper is only sensitive to blue, while multigrade (variable contrast) is also sensitive to green....

    Fujifilm WP FM2 ... that's what is written on the package ... and the rest in Japanese ;-)) But photo paper is indeed an interesting option. Looks like orthochromatic film and is a very cheap solution for using large format cameras.

    Indeed, I've been exposing it pinholes:

    I am right now scanning more pinholes (a pile waiting to be scanned since summer of 2011).
    Once I get my hands on a LF camera, I will certainly explore that possibility too....
