Hey All,

Graduating student in Aust. DPing my first film on 16mm. The film will have a lot of exteriors and I want to boost luminosity, so as to give it a general glow. I want warm whites, with splashes of ochre, amber and red. Film references i'm thinking of include; samsara, parts of munich, three colours; white, picnic at hanging rock.

What i'm really after is for the whites to have a soft luminous glow, blurring out at the edges. I've been told to use a ProMist White Filter (1/2 or 1/4) and shoot 2 or 3 stops over. Wondering if anyone else had any other ideas. Thought about a behind the camera lens (like a net), but seems risky.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Regards,

Michael Scott
