Has anyone tested the practical limits of V2-250T in terms of scans? What I'm interested in is what I can force in my scan rig. I would like to save money in production by shooting exterior-sunny shots with no fill. Then, bracket the scans and HDRI them together. Should I expose the neg for the shadows or the highs? My guess is to expose the shadows and let the highs go thick on the neg. Then, shoot (more light or time) through the thick spots during scanning and HDRI it in. Allow me to repeat my goal: I want faces to look like they have fill (understanding that this will happen in the whole image) when there was none on the shoot.

You always want to expose for the shadows, not for middle grey, but making sure they have detail, unless of course, you don't *want* them to have detail.

This thread gives me a sense of deja-vu Paul. Didn't we have a discussion on this same exact subject some time ago? Pretty sure it was you too.
