Dear Cinematographers, For a silent short film on which I am working, I desire a grainy and dark texture. I am using Tri-X super 8 black and white film. I thought perhaps that, to my unguided reflection, it would be best achieved by underexposing two stops and then using a one-stop push in processing. Would any untoward complications arise in doing so? Would there be any superior alternative? Thank you in advance. Sincerely, K. Cassidy-Gabhart
Newcomers tend to ask if a certain film stock will over or underexpose in a specific camera they have just purchased when shooting in the automatic exposure mode. Has anyone actually gotten negative footage that was either too over-exposed or too under-exposed when shooting in the automatic mode, and of course assuming there was adequate light with which to shoot?
