To begin, what are the technical variables in production that determine the image? I can think of the camera body, lens, film stock and lighting. And in post, the film processing. I imagine all of these are elements are important in making up the final image, but of these elements are there some that are more important?
The links are to images taken from films made in the early 70's. They are taken from 35mm films so perhaps they are not the best reference. I like the contrast and behaviour of colour. How am I to come close to this style? What sort of gear is necessary?
