Foma RETROBROM Sp is an unique black-and-white paper using silverbromide-iodide emulsion and made on a thick double-weight baryta paper base (FB). The paper features a rich halftone scale, exposure or developing flexibility, fine-grain and warm green-brown tone of the developed silver image, with the paper base coloured in lightly green-yellow tint. Middle level of the optical sensitivity of this material enables application of the techniques of contact copying and even enlarging to big formats. The specific warm tone of the image makes this paper suitable for works in retro-style, especially for portrait photos, but also for
other photo genres (still life, landscape, structure and detail, abstraction, etc.). RETROBROM Sp is produced on baryta paper base, in glossy and semi-matt surface in one contrast grade: special (Sp).
Foma RETROBROM Sp is suitable for lith printing.
