    Mustafa,

    with all kinds of seperation processes you got quite a lot of control, might they be applied at the primary exposure strage, or later while printing.

    The last of these processes was a printing-stage imbibition process by Kodak called `Dye Transfer´. (A member here at Apug is commercially reviving such a sytem.)
    You have control via the exposure, the type of photosensitive matrix, the development of those, the type and concentration of the dyes you use, the application of the dyes...

    This is in fact normal practice with prints for reproduction - as with digital, the idea is to start soft and work up to the contrast you need. Deep rich blacks may look great in an exhibition print but will inevitably lead to loss of detail in reproduction.

    On the DVD "Ansel Adams: Photographer", he comments that "I can control color to a certain point, but after that point, it becomes very obviously unreal".

    He does not elaborate on how he controlled color.

    One of my favourite Adams quotes:

    "I am sure the next step will be the electronic image, and I hope I shall live to see it. I trust that the creative eye will continue to function, whatever technological innovations may develop."

    - Ansel Adams
    Examples: The Making of 40 Photographs (1983)
    "Only dead fish follow the stream"

    The Kodak "How To" series on outdoor photography shows examples of AA controling color by the time of day and by filtration.
