Paper shot instead of film - filtered

Paper shot instead of film - filtered

Kodak Royal paper, used in minilabs, cut in strips, rolled on 120 rolls, and exposed in a Walzflex TLR. Filtered with a piece of C41 colour film base and a tungsten correction gel for flashguns. Exposure should be about EI 6 with that heavy filtering. Developed in C41 colour dev for 2 min at 28 deg. C.

    @sobetion @pavel_px Thanks!

    @camerabrain Thank you too! It's quite kinky, you have to cut the paper in a 60mm wide strip in total darkness, attach it to the paper back of 120 film, and then load it in the camera.
    You have to apply two filters while exposing: one tungsten correction filter, and one negative film base.
    After that filtering, you have to expose it as ISO6 (approximately) and develop in a colour developer of your choice (C-41 works, as well as RA4). The original dev. time for paper is 45 seconds at 38 degrees, but C-41 at 28 degrees C works too.
    It get a bit easier if you have a view camera - then you can load individual sheets in the film holders and not bother cutting a strip.
    Colour paper (unlike B&W one) can only be processed in total darkness.
