Imago Relaunches Range of Unique RC Positive Papers

IMAGO POSITIVE PAPER RC paper is primarily suited for use in pinhole cameras where exposure and processing in conventional black and white photo chemistry achieves a unique positive print - without the need for a film negative or inter-negative.

IMAGO POSITIVE PAPER RC paper can also be successfully used in other applications such as direct exposure in large format cameras (sheet sizes 4x5in up to 8x10in) or by cutting small sheets for exposure in LOMO type cameras. Creative and unusual effects can be achieved with direct positive paper when used to make photograms or perhaps substituted for standard photo paper when printing from negatives in an enlarger. Whatever the application, this paper can achieve unique photo images as well as fun effects.
