Compared to digital captures, is film photography in fine art typically characterized as being bright or having high exposure by nature?
By exposure, I don't mean chemical processes applied to film negatives, but am conceptually proxying the exposure effect found in image editing software. And by film look, think Hasselbad and Velvia. By nature, does the film photograph-look (for day-time photographs) have a reputation for appearing to be brightly exposed or no?
The reason for the question is that another characteristic of film photographs is "soft colors" (low saturation), which seems to lend to the quality of such photographs appearing to have high exposure because of the soft, bright aesthetics of film photography, even though they might really not.
