RE: Production design for B&W to color spot.



Geoff says:-
>>The image is made in totally different ways, with the colour neg you're
looking at the dyes left behind after the silver has been removed, with
a
mono neg you're looking at the silver.<<

Yes of course. But the telecine isn't bewitched by the lure of the
precious metal, all it sees is three values: red, green, and blue.
There is an issue of the higher specular density of the silver image: I
wonder if that's it. (And of course even looking at the diffuse density,
b/w negs have a higher gamma than colour negs.)

But I still contend that design and lighting can do more to make or
destroy a good monochrome image than the choice of stock - HP 5
notwithstanding.  Check the original "subject" tag for this thread.
