Low-contrast look inside and out
Posted 24 July 2008 - 07:32 AM
The problem is the disparity in the locations; the one interior is a large church, with mostly daylight. And since the lighting package is abysmal--small tungsten fresnels that will require gelling to match the daylight--I'll need every bit of the 500s speed to make the location work. (I'm leaning towards the Reala because I won't need an 85, and thus won't lose the 2/3 of a stop; also, I'd prefer to work with no filtration with Super 16.) The other location, however, is an open field, which we'll be shooting in the summer sun, and either 7229 or 8692 will require some heavy NDs--which I am very reluctant to use--to get down to my planned shooting stop of T2.8/4.
Any suggestions on a low-speed daylight stock that might match well with 7229 or 8692, so I don't have to use all those NDs? I wish I had the time and money to do tests, but there was barely money in the budget to upgrade from regular 16 to Super!

Why are you reluctant to use NDs?... I use them on my S16 Package every shoot to lessen the DOF. I have never felt reluctant to shoot through one, two or more NDs/ Pola combos.
