Re: A Brief Return to Film, Could Use Some Help

Use film as film. None, or very little,  post adjustment expectation. Nail the exposure  pre shutter press. If you do not want shadow area to be shadow area  within the frame,   light it up.

I meter off a grey card through the camera lens after I have framed and focused. That eliminates any errors from focus breathing, filters or lens variations which a hand held meter does not. The hand held is for emergencies or  second opinion.

Currently  I shoot with Provia 100/ 120 and Acros 100/ 120 - both rated at 84. My E-6 comes out within a quarter stop  and the B&W comes out exact.
