Lighting for Black & White on SD/HD Camera
Posted 07 April 2008 - 06:30 AM
I know of "The Man Who Wasn't There" and how producers wanted it in color print but the cinematographers wanted it in black and white. So they shot it in color for the producers but lit it for a black and white film. The result was totally bad and that persuaded the producers later to have it in black and white print. I wasn't able to search up much on the lighting styles in the film, so I hope someone could help me out here.

"The Man Who Wasn't There" was always intended to be in b&w, and it wasn't the producers who wanted it shot in color. It was the film's European distributor who demanded a color version.
I'm thinking it was for the Asian/ Far East market, rather than Europe.

There has been lots of discussion about shooting B&W on video:
Even when you shoot in color though, you should still be using the basics of contrast to create depth and composition.
