I do not intend to use this film for line work.
I need to ask the following; How do i "basicially use this film" to :
capture/transfer images to this film without a 4x5, 8x10 camera or reproduction camera -
Process the film ? Can modern day everyday photo shops process this film onto photopaper?
Since it is black and originally used for line art how do you get midtones or add color within posterization for example.
PS- I'm just above an amateur in photography. My primary interest for this film to blow up/edit images, special effects, and artistic experimentation and illustration/graphic design related things. Possibly screening as well.
How long does this film last for?
Is it hard to scan?
I have access to a darkroom and the purchasing of color and black and white basic darkroom chemicals and even some "repro/lith developer chemicals " ( Are those even necessary?) I heard AB developer is . Not sure
I have a 35mm nikon F3, a set of filters and a whole ton of slides.
I have a book from the 1970's on special effects that show how to create these effects.
Could anyone offer any help?
