Several years ago, Freestyle sought to counter the trend of rising photo supply costs by introducing the Arista.EDU Ultra line of film and paper. In a time when industry heavyweights have exited the traditional photographic field, Arista.EDU Ultra provides students and educators a reliable supply of high quality and affordable photographic materials. Arista.EDU Ultra resin coated (RC) papers are a variable contrast (VC), neutral tone, medium weight paper.
i bought this for my photo ap class because i ran out of photo paper and decided to buy it in bulk once and for all. it came a little earlier than expected, which is nice. the quality is as expected (i used this exact brand and type of photo paper for two years so i decided to buy the same thing.) this is sort of pricy for me since i'm a high school student, but photography overall is expensive and this is actually very cheap for the amount of paper you get so i'm actually very satisfied with the price. i would buy it again after i ran out (i don't think i'll run out of any soon though)
Works well for the class I'm taking, however, it was hard to figure out which side of the paper to expose. Our instructor said to use the shiny side, but that's not easy in a darkroom. The side with slightly MORE texture ended up being the correct side to expose, rather than the smoother, shinier side. Wasted a few sheets before I figured it out, but it wasn't that expensive, so I don't mind too much. Once I got it down, it gives very good contrast and dark blacks and white whites.
Exactly as described, no damage to the package (which if you are looking to buy this paper, you know could be disastrous)
The paper is good quality. The box is easy to rip up, but the paper comes in a blacked out bag so it should be fine. I’ve kept mine in the bag for awhile now and only the very edge got exposed to light because I wasn’t careful.
We bought this photo paper and opened the sealed box and bag in the dark room, it was never removed from the dark room and paper was always put back in the black bag and box. Some pictures came out very dark and others didn't come out at all. There was a very short return window and by the time we realized that the photo paper was bad, it was too late to return.
I love the matte-ness of these. Will never got back to glossy paper. The picture posted was printed on the pearl paper. 10/10 would recommend
Does NOT work with amber safelights but didn't mention that on the handling & safelights section. Luckily I had a few test strips before using them with my photos. I'd recommend buying a smaller quantity if it's your first time using this brand to if they fog.
Cheap and good to use, The best choice for students
Aunque dice que son 25 hojas de 11 x 14 y ya en los detalles había la opción de que fueran 100 hojas de 8 x 10, tenía mis dudas, pero efectivamente la caja llegó de 100 hojas 8 x 10 que era lo que yo necesitaba. Además está en perfectas condiciones y el resultado ha sido bueno. Me parece que la calidad del papel cumple con el objetivo que es el aprendizaje de los estudiantes de fotografía análoga, aunque todavía me falta probar la variación de contraste, pero seguramente obtendremos buenos resultados.
Fantastic paper. Well sealed package. No fog. Works great with ilford multigrade filter and ilford multigrade developper. I love this pearl finition
