Quote:Yes the workflow is as followFunny. So the DR was too high, and with burning and dodging they brought it down to get a more contrasty, low DR image.
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.
Luckily, the standard tonal curves of cameras do that for us already.
