SENSITOMETRY IN COLOR AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY

SENSITOMETRY IS USEFUL FOR THE PRACTICAL DETERMINATION OF FILM SPEED AND SETTING CORRECT EXPOSURE, ADJUSTMENT OF COLOR BALANCE, AND CONTROL OF PRINTING. MEASUREMENT OF DENSITIES AND PLOTTING OF CHARACTERISTIC CURVES PROVIDES DATA FOR CARRYING OUT THESE AIMS. FROM THE PRACTICAL VIEWPOINT, SENSITOMETRIC TECHNIQUES HAVE LIMITATIONS, BUT THESE ARE RELATIVELY INSIGNIFICANT IF THEY ARE RECOGNIZED AND THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN SENSITOMETRY AND PRACTICAL PHOTOGRAPHY ARE ESTABLISHED FOR COLOR PHOTOGRAPHIC SYSTEMS. CHOICE OF DENSITY RANGE, FOR EXAMPLE, AND THEREFORE SPEED RATING, CAN LEAD TO SOME CONTROL OF CONTRAST AND GRADATION IN THE FINAL PHOTOGRAPHS. SENSITOMETRY IS ALSO ESSENTIAL IN MAKING BLACK-WHITE NEGATIVES, COLOR SEPARATIONS, OR DUPLICATES FROM COLOR POSITIVES OR NEGATIVES. /AUTHOR/
