Hello, I'm currently working on a film experiment where I would like to process my film to have a midnight-blue & white look. I'm under the impression that I can process my negative normally and then experiment with processing the work-print. I have found some information online about Cyanotype processing (for still photography) but I am hoping to find some help on here -- recommendations to books on processing, uploaded examples of your own work, etc) To be clear, I am hoping to achieve a look that has white-whites, but where the deepest black goes to a midnight blue (and still retains some type of dynamic range) Cyanotype processes tend to look more like a bright or royal blue in their darkest tones. I haven't decided what B&W stock I will use yet, but have a short-end of 7222 that I will test on.
I am the DP in pre-production for a feature being shot in Israel on black and white Infra Red film. I am searching for a lab that would be willing to switch out their standard D96 chemicals for a more fine grain developer. Anyone out there with recommendations of a lab? The only lab I have found willing to comply is Arri Munich, however they are only willing to use d76 and i would like to use a more fine grain developer like Xtol or something of the sort. In addition I am curious if there are any labs that are willing to use chemicals other then Kodak? Please feel free to contact me directly email@example.com.
