Show Notes

On this episode of The Wandering Dp Podcast I share a recent experience on set and how light meters can help you work faster and get a better end result.

During the podcast I misspoke on two seperate occasions.

#1.  This is, in fact, episode #34 not #33.

#2.  I mention towards the end that you decrease the brightness of the background when you bump up to ISO 640.  This is not correct.  The ISO doesn’t change relative brightness.  Everything in the image appears to be a stop brighter.  What I meant to say is that the Dynamic Range is remapped to shift a stop into the highlights.  This shift allows the lens to close down or ND to be used to limit the amount of light hitting the sensor which in turn gets us the result we needed.

The important thing to remember is that the Dynamic Range can be remapped and you can use the placement of Middle Grey to save yourself in certain situations.
