I wanted to clear some of the misconceptions i have regarding few techniques used on film like flashing the negative, pushing and pulling a negative by a stop. I wana test it on film before clearing my doubts as i wana spend d least amount so dont wana do any mistake
1) I have read tat flashing reduces the contrast by not letting the white brighter and filling in the shadow . My question is if we pre flash a negative with a panaflasher should we compensate with the f stop.
2)I have read that pulling also reduces the contrast and the grain so if i use a 250 ISO stock and pull it by a stop its rating will be 125 IS0 and for pulling its the opposite. My question here is when we do the lighting for a shot n if im using a 250 D stock while setting the iso on d light meter should i keep the iso setting at 250 iso or compensate it to 125 iso in d light meter for the reading.
Please share ur knowledge as im new in d field...
