    I would like to know which brand has the best photographic paper to go into the back of a pinhole camera. Also im confused about if photographic paper is just paper that goes in a printer or paper that comes in a light tight box for my specific purpose.

    No it is not printer paper. Photographic paper is light sensitive paper that in a darkroom you project your negative from the enlarger. So you will need to buy this kind of paper for your pinhole camera. Also you will need a darkroom to develop the paper in.

    I would suggest Arista paper from freestyle. It is a very inexpensive paper with good quality. If money is not an issue I would suggest Ilford. Thats just what I use, everyone has their own preferences.
