Fomatone 'Nature' FB 532
Fomatone 'Nature' 532 is a variable contrast, fibre based paper on a heavy weight base. Sister paper to the 'Chamois' 542, it features a superb surface finish unmatched by any other paper today - the surface is also a matt, but not a dead matt, there is still a degree of reflectance and some faint texture. The paper features a superb ivory, off-white base tint which, coupled with the Chloro-bromide emulsion, makes for warm tone prints, and beautiful creamy highlights, but it's not as yellow as the 'Chamois' 542. It could be seen as an alternative to some of the more exotic, now discontinued, papers from other manufacturers and, almost infinitely flexible, photographers can indulge themselves over and over again experimenting with different developer / dilution combinations. Fomatone 532 also Liths well. Not the cheapest, but given it's endless flexibility, and being one of the most unique papers on the market today, it's certainly very good value indeed.
