7219 Grain Structure
Posted 09 June 2010 - 06:02 PM
I am shooting another film next month on the same stock but I want to lessen the appearance of grain. I have heard that over exposing will activate the smaller grain structure in the film thus reducing the appearance of grain. I was thinking of rating the 500T as 320 ASA or 250 ASA but I am not quite sure what this will yield and I'm still trying to get the budget to perform some film tests.
Has anybody had success doing this? If so what did you rate your film's ASA to be?

I will rate the 500T at 320 and shoot film tests if I can squeak the extra cash out of production, if not then I'll go ahead and shoot the film that way anyhow since it seems to be a common practice.
Thanks again for your help.

A best light will do the best to correct for "normal" exposure, so they certainly would've lifted it up to make it brighter. I had the same issue with a post house over here on some 35mm film and I had even sent them instructions; but that was an issue where I didn't have a relationship with the house for film, so partially my fault. I would see if you can do a cut then go back and rescan the selects supervised to get everything looking fantastic
