I'm working on a project and was wondering if anyone had any experience and advice to offer on this..
I'm shooting 2 x moving portraits of an African American model on 35mm B&W Kodak Eastman Double-X Negative 5222. Both shots will be locked down on sticks and with no movement (other than the subject blinking and breathing). One shot will be in a studio with lighting and the other shot may be day exterior. We will be shooting 24 fps and with no fancy speed changes/reverse etc.
This is my first time shooting on 35mm and its been a while since i shot on 16mm so ive had to do a lot of research over the past few weeks which has been exciting learning.
The subject has tattoos on her upper arms. Its quite important that we capture the tattoos (black ink writing).
I'm wondering if anyone has any advice on this particular film stock in relation to capturing those kinds of details on darker skin / how best to light and expose for these details? Are there other factors that i havent considered which impact this? Generally any advice on this film stock would be great as this is my first time shooting on it.
Let me know if i should post this on the lighting thread as well..
