View Full Version : Help me, RFF friends...about exposure
I want to shoot some portrets with KODAK T-max, ISO 400 in low light.If I develop film in --push-- process( push on ISO 1600), wich exposure time will be correct( somewhere I red about that - to expose ISO 400 film like it has 1600 sensitivity and than push it on ISO 1600). Where can I find ( web adress or something like that ) exposure guide for ISO 1600 films?( when i want to shoot from hand or with shutter speeds 1/60 or 1/125)?
Thank you, I whish you good light!
Yes, you are on the right track. To push film you underexpose and then overdevelop.
Set your meter to ISO 1600. Since you are under exposing by 2 stops you then overdevelop by 2 stops.
See The Massive Dev Chart (http://www.digitaltruth.com/devchart.html) to get some idea of what times to use for developing T-Max at 1600 for your developer.

Yes, you shoot the film at an ISO of 1600 and then develop it as 1600.
If your developer is from Kodak too, i would advice you to look for the developing info from their site (the site is slow):
Thak you, RFF friends!
