underexposed shadow areas of the negative. With
black-and-white negative film, the underexposure to the
shadow areas may not be enough to cause loss of shadow
detail. This is because of the greater exposure latitude
and film processing latitude of black-and-white film
compared to color negative film. With color negative
film, however, underexposure to the shadow areas may
cause loss of shadow detail and a color shift in the
shadow areas that is uncontrollable in printing.
Remember, basing your portrait exposure on the fill
light alone applies only when the lighting ratios are
within about a 2:1 to 4:1 range. Beyond a 4:1 lighting
ratio, you may have to calculate your exposure based on
both the main and fill lights.
