Quote:Dodging and burning was used to limit the DR mostly. To increase contrast.Yes the workflow is as follow
high DR scene -> High DR negative -> /dark room processing= DR compression/ -> Low DR foto paper /6...7stops/
Yes result is reduced DR and increased contrast on fotopaper.
Many photographers still use this technique. That is why we need high DR negative.
My experience - 90% of the time I have good lighting. The DR of my smartphone is good enough.
