Highlights Under 75 IRE (1 reply)

I've been studying a lot of screengrabs from Prisoners and Sicario only to realise that most of your highlights (Especially skies, practicals and windows) fall under or close to 75 IRE.

How much of this is due to your LUT and how much of it is due to keying specific areas in the DI process?

Thanks you very much Roger.

I think this question was answered before. Basically, I light as I would for film and the highlights fall where they fall. I do little if any keying in the DI and, if truth be told, I don't even know what 75 IRE implies.
