hi all,

i would like to get a very contrasty result using ektachrome 16mm. I 1st thought about cross processing but I think I want it reversal. So, the bleach in e6, would it be to make 'blacks' into whites (like in BW reversal)? What would happen if i don't bleach in e6, re-expose and re-develop? Also, would you know of any example of ECN (neg film) being developed using e6?

Many thanks!

The Bleach in any colour process removes the silver. If you were to leave the silver completly in a reversal film the result would be fairly dark. The standard process for e-6 has one go at removing the silver from both developers. (ie they don't bleach the negative image and come back later and bleach the positive image)

Cross processing is going to give you "strange" - " Rock Video " colour no mater if you want it or not.

Using negative and doing Bleach bypass, will give you MOre contrst at the expense of Ghostly colour. Look in the past threads and you will probaly find some examples. (can you tell that I think it is an effect that can be overdone as much as Fisheye lenes were in the 60's?)
