Colour zone scale


Thought this might be helpful as a guide when previewing you images and seeing colours translate into gray scale.

Re: Colour zone scale


now thats interesting...

looking at te blue I find myself saying that the zone IV blue looks like more than one stop darkers as I would imagine one stop lower exposure to be, looks more like 2 stiops

what are your thoughts Martin?

Re: Colour zone scale


I think they are about right to be honest, suppose it all depends on how your eyes interpret the colours although I think the values would have been measured before making this chart (i nicked it off web)

Re: Colour zone scale


doesnt work for me for several reasons - firstly I have noticed before if I under/over expose the yellow/oranges don't shift anywhere as precisely as that suggests orange certainly doesnt got from orange to yellow in one stop difference - whether a zone represensta stop of course is another question altogether

I find that you do have to be really careful with digital exposing for colour ( not to even get polarizers in the equation) as the colour dont aleays go where you'd expect and sometime s ahalf stop shift makes ahuge difference and sometime snot

back to the question of blue - looks about teh same as adding apolariser and thats supposedto be 2 stops innit?

anyway

thannks fpr posting that but can't see how I would use it

interesting all the same for at least pointing out that if you dont get exporsue spot on you can expect your colours to go all over the place
