Tips for Metering Color Negative Film
Going to be heading to Northern Saskatchewan on a canoe trip soon and I'm planning on shooting a bunch of B&W and color negative film (the idea being that if we dump and my ME Super ends up in the bottom of a river than I'm out about $100 rather than the $1000 I'd be out if my digital lands there).
Alot of the shots will be during the day and there will be alot of contrast. How should I meter to make sure I don't lose the highlights?
With digital I expose for the highlights and push shadows in PP if need be.
B&W I expose for the shadows and adjust processing time accordingly.
However I won't be developing my own colour stuff so does anyone have tips for how to meter for Colour Negative Film? Is it forgiving enough that I shouldn't have to worry about the highlights? I read some accounts of overexposing a bit but that seems a little risky if I'm worried about the highlights.
Thanks in advance,
