So at my school I'm going to have the luck to be the DP of a small short in 35mm.
The worflow is this :
the negative is developped and transfered in both mediocre HD for editing and decent 2K for grading and finishing.
I know more or less how contrast works when you get a positive from the negative, that is : shooting the same negative at various EI + the positive give different looks (deeper blacks, more or less contrast in the shadows, less grain, more saturation etc etc)
So I wonder how this applies when you scan the negative directly.
I'll have a 500T, what if I rate it at 250 ?
The guy from the lab told be he scans according to the middle gray chart (if we shoot one)
What about things like blacks, whites, contrast, visible grain, saturation ?
Thanks guys !
