Some good photography news for 2021, Ilford are releasing a premium version of their popular RC papers “MULTIGRADE RC PORTFOLIO”
“Utilising our 5th generation MULTIGRADE emulsion, this new formulation offers important advancements in product quality and performance that we are now pleased to introduce into our premium RC paper, MULTIGRADE RC PORTFOLIO.
These new papers have a slightly warmer base tint and image colour than their predecessor as well as better, deeper blacks, improved mid-grade spacing for easier printing and more consistent contrast throughout the tonal range.”
As described by Ilford on their release, it’s a paper for extra special prints that blends all of the best aspects of different Ilford papers. Your top drawer work deserves to be displayed on the best paper and this is filling that niche, whilst you may have to pay extra for that it’s an investment and a testament to the work that is printed on it. It still retains the ease of use that is enjoyed on other Ilford RC papers though so can be used by students and professionals alike.
An interesting tidbit accompanying the release is this postcard too, neat little idea! Prints should be enjoyed in the physical not just shared on Instagram..
I recognize I may say this ad nauseam but…This release spells good things to come in the future, the more we support Ilford and other companies in the analogue sphere the more releases we’re likely to see.
