    What paper do you use when you want to get a nice print?

    Define 'nice print'.
    Everyone has their own favourites and, like film choice, it's purely personal.
    What works for one person will not necessarily work for someone else. I know people who insist that Kodak make the best, others who swear by Agfa, and yet others who love Seagull. Whenever I have tried any of these I found the results disappointing. I use Ilford.
    The best thing is to try a range of different makes (in several different developers*) and see which one you like the most.

    *The developer you use has a big effect on how the paper works. They can even change the warmth of the blacks. I tend to use Dektol - but others have their favourites.
