"Many times,the way to keep things dark is NOT NECESSARILY having very low levels of light.
Today's film stocks are very sensitive,so they can actually see quite a bit more in the dark areas than you would imagine.To keep things dark,you actually have to have highlights at a stop where the film doesn't have an opportunity to reach in-something where you might think you're at a T1.4 but are actually at a T3.5. (...)"
i'm not quite sure what he means. is he letting the highlights burn to get that contrasty look, the film is all about? that's the only explaination i could give on "have highlights at a stop where the film doesn't have an opportunity to reach in&but are actually at T3.5".
I have no idea which aperture he was shooting at, so no real reference to his mentioned Tstops.
