actually what you’re talking about is a completly film thing. Anything shot digitally is pretty much what you see what you get. Film however you don’t get that luxuray. when lighting in film what you’re most worried about is the tempeture of the scene. if there’s too much light it over exposes if not enough it under exposes. you’re looking for that middle area, but even then when you go over the dailies you’ll find the film is very washed out. that’s okay because with technology today we can go through that film and make adjustments to make it look all pretty. that’s the power of color correction baby. when shooting digitaly however you always aim for brighter becuase trying to brighten a dark image will cause grain much more than darkening bright scene.
