for an explicit example of how the Intangible Sludge has become standardized, look no further than a season 1 dexter screencap & a dexter: new blood screencap (pls do not @ me with "but he's not in miami anymore")

Why has this look become so standardized? It hurts my eyes and brain.

digital cameras with insane dynamic range + LED light + fix it in post. These things arent inherently bad but its made a lot of people, especially younger DPs sloppy. Haze the room out, shoot it in LOG, end up liking the LOG look, forget to add the colors back in. Sludge

I just don't buy that the entire industry is "forgetting" to add colors back in. This is a choice
