RE: Production design for B&W to color spot.
There is a definite difference shooting a real mono neg and shooting a
colour neg and draining the colour.
I've shot side by side tests in the past to make the point to producers.
There is a look to the "real" mono that isn't there in the drained neg.
It's the difference between a mono still printed on Agfa Brovira and one
printed on a polycontrast paper.
There is more subtlety to the mid tones, a much smoother look.
The image is made in totally different ways, with the colour neg you're
looking at the dyes left behind after the silver has been removed, with a
mono neg you're looking at the silver.
Give me HP5 any day :-)
