When adjusting a R3D RAW shot in PP CS5.5 in Source Settings, or RedCineX, and you want to lighten up the scene, is it better to raise the ISO or the exposure?
If you want a larger DOF when shooting a scene, but to achieve that, while keeping an ISO of 800, you end up underexposing the shot, it seems to me that you could, later in post, bring up the scene to acceptable levels while still maintaining the original DOF. So, in post, is it better to raise the ISO or the exposure?
In the days of film, choices like this were not possible because of the detrimental effects it had on the end results. With R3D files this is not the case. Therefore, I just want to be clear on the proper approaches to achieve this.
I would greatly appreciate any feedback, comments, or suggestions.
Thanks for your time.
