Guillem Zamora Posted March 17 Share Posted March 17 So I was reading the American Cinematographer article on Damien Chazelle's Babylon, lensed by Linus Sandgren, and I came across his strategy for push-processing the film stock: Sandgren’s strategy involved four Kodak Vision3 negatives: 50D 5203 (pushed 1 stop and rated at 25 ISO) for day exteriors, 250D 5207 (pushed 1 stop and rated at 125 ISO) for day interiors, 200T 5213 (pushed 1 stop and rated at 100 ISO) for most night scenes, and 500T 5219 (pushed 1 stop and rated at 250 ISO) for select night sequences. When I shoot film stills in my camera, if I have a 200 ASA rated film, and I want to push it by +1 stop, I change the light meter to read at 400 ASA and then tell the lab to push +1 stop. So why is he rating the film -1 stop lower if he's pushing it? Is he simply overexposing it? It might be really obvious but I'd love to know!
