Inexpensive paper advice needed !

Postby davidgaynor » Fri Jan 09, 2009 12:53 am

I need a paper that's not too expensive for my A level photography exams. I've used Museo Silver Rag and a couple of Hahnemuhle papers until recently. Trouble is, I'm now officially broke and need a paper that suits my present financial status.
I am considering using RC paper and would like to know if anybody has any recommendations. I've read that Ilford Galerie Smooth Pearl is quite decent. I print from an R2400 and I'm doing a project on Art Deco architecture and also one on Product still life.

Regards,

David Gaynor.

Thanks for all that Bez. I replied but the reply gremlin must have nicked it.
I'm glad you have said that the Galerie Smooth Pearl is a good one and I will look into the Sheffield company.

Regards,

David.
