Is it generally acceptable to send in a still or two from a shot taken with a dslr or something that has been color corrected already to give the colorist something to work with?
I think you'll find most colourists really appreciate as much help with the *dialogue* between dp and colourist. It's often hard to desribe a look verbally, so any form of image, be it emailed, printed or referenced will help. I really like actual prints, because you have a form of quality control from them. When I do a print on set, i tweak the image taking into account the way my printer works. I then send that along with the rushes. If you email it, you have no idea how that image will then be viewed at the other end. There are other more formal ways of calibrating this process, but i usually find this works well most of the time.
I use a kodak dye-sub printer on set BTW.
