Tungsten film under daylight without filtration (1 reply)

So, this isn't my favorite photo that I've ever taken; but, I shot it on CineStill 800t with a naked lens and be the color was corrected in the scan. I also rated the film at 400 ISO.

So, I don't think that I lost anything by not using an 85 filter. 

Also, in all honesty, I'm not entirely clear about what Lubezki meant when he said that he shot The Tree of Life on tungsten film without filtration in order to avoid homogenizing the colors.

Just looking for thoughts.

I would often shoot on a tungsten balanced film stock with no 85 correction filter. I found I would get cooler shadows that way and cleaner colors. I suspect that is what Chivo was referring to.
