Just came across the "30 days of Night" article in AC November 07...
quote Jo Willems:"I exposed the snow Two stops under and rated the film (5217) at 800 ASA, or otherwise everything looked like daylight"
please correct me, if i'm wrong but in this case the 2 stops underexposure (not the ones from the Higher ASA rating) are INCIDENT Readings, right?
If "two stops under" would represent spot meter readings, the snow would come out as Zone I (Ansel Adams Wise) (which would not look like snow at all) (Zone III @ 800ASA - 2 Stops), so i guess it's INCIDENT (also because he says it in one sentence with the higher ASA rating)



Then :"(...)when Marlow first appears, his skin tone is 4 stops under key(...)" that one seems to be a spot reading-

usually, when i'm reading stuff like that, i'm used to spot meter readings...like in datasheets.

THX!
