I have been having trouble getting nice, contrasty pictures on set, especially on daylight shots. I have a lot of things at the same exposure with no areas of light and dark or the dark areas don't look dark enough. We do have some great shots but the general look of the film is not as contrasty as I would like it to be. I know there are things I can do in post to boost this but, I like getting as much on set and on the camera as possible without counting on Post to get me out of the hole. There is nothing I can do for what's already in the can, but I would like to see what techniques from more experienced DP's (this is my first feature) I can use so I can get better at my craft. Thank you for your comments. Here is a link to the trailer so you can know a little more about the project and see where I'm coming from:
