    Can others edit my Photos:

    Suggestion: Your film has a zone latitude of about 9 zones.

    1. Determine shadow exposure.
    2. Determine highlight exposure.
    3. If they span 9 zones or less, expose for the average value.
    4. If they span more than 9 zones, use the shadow exposure stopped down 4 stops, as you have stated.

    If you're using roll film, it's a good [and inexpensive] idea to bracket the exposures. It would also be a good idea to take a frame at the highlight exposure plus 4 stops if total range exceeds 9 zones.
