If I were you, I would save the annual fee and work to achieve the results I desired digitally....Printing and shooting the print with film will involve loss of data and may result in other problems.
The desired result is a silver halide emulsion based print. There is a visual and tactile difference to the image being in the paper (in the case of emulsion), compared to on the paper (in the case of the ink print).
Perhaps I didn't choose the right words for what I am asking, I don't want to photograph (or even scan) an ink print. THAT would, as you say, involve loss of data. I am wanting a direct digital to film. I can process and do my mono conversion in PS, then invert the values. At that point, I would need that converted to a film negative, to take into the darkroom to create the final product, a silver print.
