HARMAN DIRECT POSITIVE FB is a premium quality, black & white photo paper. This fixed grade, high contrast paper is perfect for pinhole photography as exposure and processing in conventional black & white photo chemistry will achieve a positive print without the need for a negative.
In addition, this versatile paper can be used to creative photograms or substituted for standard photo paper when printing from negatives in an enlarger. It can also be successfully used in other applications such as direct exposure in large format cameras.
The direct positive emulsion had originally been developed by ILFORD Imaging Switzerland GmbH and Harman used to it coat a fibre base version.
When the Swiss company ceased trading in 2013 it caused interruption to product supplies. Harman have secured access to the emulsion and are now able to produce it themselves in the UK.
Following successful trial coatings the paper has gone into production and will once again be available. When processed the paper gives a positive image, without any need for a negative. It is ideal for pinhole cameras, as you can create the finished, positive print in the camera.
The paper is processed exactly the same way as traditional fiber base paper. If you are interested in larger sizes, or rolls, please email us as these are special lines.
Some lines are special order only, lead-time can vary.
