I have a question concerning the difference of bleach bypass on the print vs. the negative.
As I understand it the effect of skipping the bleaching is most apparent where most of the silver is developped – the highlight areas in the negative and the shadows in the positive.
On tests with various stocks I saw, the effect looked extremely similar on both types: Increased contrast, desaturised colors, deep blacks and blown out highlights.
How is it possible that the areas not containing metallic silver – the highlights in the positive and the shadows in the negative - seem simlarly affected?
