The last one: if it is digital, I can save the 'Man in dark in right side', but not film
we may want to move this to a more film oriented thread, but hey mine was shot with a Leica too lol
on film you can just expose for the shadows and use a compensating developer like rodinal, esp. at 1:100 doing stand development where the rodinal will exhaust itself on the brighter areas but keep developing in the shadow areas.
basically, like this:
excuse my crude drawing, please.
anyway the difference in EV between the bit being hit by direct sunlight and the bit in shadows was really, really extreme. please note that this is how it scans in on my scanner, which is quite flat. typically I do not do stand development like this because I hate shadow detail. I would rather just get my highlights where I want them and let the shadows block up completely. just personal preference.
