Paper Negative


This is a 4x5 paper negative.  I can’t remember what kind of printing paper I used, but the exposure was long — at least 30 minutes.  Below is what the print would look like.  Some people like this process because it gives you a shallow depth of field, high contrast, old timey look.  It would probably look better toned.
