RE: digital negative possibilities for gum
Hi all, I used diginegs with silver emulsion some years ago to get grain into images that were originally shot on 25ASA film - kinda roundabout way of getting what I wanted (why didn't I shoot in 3200 to start with?) but a useful experiment. The prints were, in fact, very successful and the beginning of my experimentation with diginegs. I didn't use bitmaps, though, I used a monochrome RGB image and added film grain with the filters option in Photoshop. There are certainly hundreds of ways to skin a cat with Photoshop.
I know what you are getting at—I have some color prints that were made from enlarging an area of a color negative and I really do like the effect of the dots of various color that make up the image.
