I would really like to know the logistics of the opening scene to raging bull. How did he get get such a crisp distinct black of the ropes in the foreground yet the hazy gray in the back? what do you think it was how did he make it look so fuzzy and foggy yet the ropes so crisp and the light bulb flashes so definitive? any help would do thanks

Smoke is dimensional so it looks heavier as you look into the background, so as long as there is not a back light washing over the foreground, the foreground should go into silhouette nicely.
