Hello everyone, I decided to rewatch tinker tailor soldier spy the other day just to study its cinematography. It is a very well shot film with a muted, understated look that reminds me of Melville's Army of Shadows. Unfortunately i haven't been able to find much info online about its cinematography. What i would like to know in particular is how the low contrast look was achieved. Certainly there is a combination of factors at play from production design to lighting to maybe even flashing the film? For example It is obvious that In most interior scenes they used smoke which you can tell by looking at the light sources. But obviously they did more than that since they achieve the same look even on exterior wides. If i had to guess there is some sort of filtration used like ultra cons or low con filters but i am not sure. I am wondering if anyone knows more inside info or make an educated guess based on experience. Thanks
