filters for my film photography!


Hi all I am going to shoot film during summer with my 24-85 lens (filter size 72mm) and the 85mm 1.8G (Filter size 67mm) and I was wondering if you can help me 1. read about which filters I should pack for shooting color and black and white film in very sunny and contrasty scenes and 2. how to use a light meter (spot meter available) for very contrasty scenes. Thanks a lot for being so big help. Regards Alex

However, for more detailed instructions please refer to the "Anselm Adams method". Google will help you.
