    Question What "I pulled it one stop" mean?

    Could you help me on understanding the meaning of "I pulled it one stop" ?

    This phrase appears on an interview to a film cinematographer in a camera magazine "In Camera".
    The cinematographer talks about his film as following.
    "During the last two sections, I used the Kodak Vision 250D film 5246 and pulled it one stop. I wanted a very soft, non-contrasty feel. I wanted all the blacks to be gray. It is reminiscent of an old Western."

    I'd appreciate for your help.

    Thie sort of 'stop' is some technical thing to do with photography - aperture, I think. Check here: Howstuffworks "HowStuffWorks UK"

    Thank you for information
    I have further question.
    Does "pull it one stop" mean "close the aperture of lens" ?

    I presume so, although this is a meaning of 'pull' that I hadn't met before. But when my brother was a second camera assistant ('clapper boy') his immediate superior was called a 'focus puller' - which suggests that you can pull focus either in or out.
