Once I get my 5x7 fully functional (still a few months away due to $$) I want to try some of that Lodima stuff people seem so smitten with. A lot of what people seem to be describing for that as well as various alt processes is a long tonal scale due to the paper being very low contrast and so handling the full range of a high-contrast negative. Is it possible to create a similar effect in an enlargement or contact print on VC paper by developing the negative to a high contrast and simply using a 00 or 0 grade filter? I haven't read anything about this, which leads me to think that it's been tried and doesn't really work. Is it possible, and if not why doesn't it?
