Although, the technique may not be easy to print and or scan.
When having very high contrast negative the shadows in the picture tend to bleed into the mid and high tones. Even the unexposed borders of the film could be a problem, creating shadows in the outer part of the image. That’s why in some of the upcoming examples I have cropped the images. The border problem could be addressed with a tight frame, that crop just inside the exposed part of the film strip.

This problem may occur both in traditional printing and scanning, but most scanners do not perform well with dens and high contrast negatives. These Images are scanned, but if I would digitize them today I would use my Nikon camera instead. Shooting the negative gives more options regarding the exposure.
