    Bleach bypass for C41 and/or RA4

    Hello,

    Did anyone do bleach bypass with C41 and/or RA4? I guess Im wondering if this has the same effect as with motion pictures and ECN2, whats the difference on doing it with C41 versus RA4, and if the keeping properties are the same?

    Cheers
    Peter

    Haven't tried it, but one can surmise that leaving silver in the image, along with the dyes, would have a veiling and contrast-reducing effect in the denser areas. In other words, most effect would be seen in the final-image highlights when done in C41, and in final-image shadows (probably less visible?) if done in RA4.

    Worth experimentation certainly.
