If you want the artificial HDR look, the way to do that would be a combination of careful exposure (so you get all the information you need on the film) and contrast masking. A contrast mask is made by exposing a piece of bw film in register with the original to make a precise dodging mask that is printed in register with the original neg to hold back the shadows and allow for extra exposure to get more detail into the highlights.

Historic printing-out processes like albumen printing are self-masking in this way and don't require a separate contrast reduction mask to achieve this effect.
