06 Contrast Ratio
Contrast ratio has a lot to do with our last tutorial on the iris. You see contrast ratio is the difference between the lightest and darkest objects in a shot. Unfortunately video doesn\'t do very well with this and the iris we talked about last time is the tool that has to deal with it. Here\'s another excerpt from the Mastering Videography DVD.
