I've always used Arista EDU glossy paper in my photo class. I recently switched to Ilford matte paper (really not sure the actual names of either). The new prints have been very low contrast. Its sort of annoying. They have this grayish hue to them. I don't think they are getting fogged because the borders are nice and white... I've only done 2 prints so far so I've got some guess and check to do before I get my style down but its frustrating.
