Plaubel Makina 67 with Fuji Provia 400X

Yesterday I got three rolls of slide film from the lab. I will once more repeat that its really a joy to open the envelope and look at a medium format slide. This was my last Provia 400X roll, I will probably stay with Provia 100F and Velvia 50 from on. The ISO 400 of this film makes it easier to shoot handheld with a medium format camera so its a good travel slide film, but even with medium format it show some grain. So, if I want to shoot a faster color film, I am going to use the Kodak Portra 400 Professional which also has great dynamic range.

The good thing with slide film is that you don’t have to interpret color like you do with a color negative. With Provia I avoid to make photos at shadows since it gets a blue cast. I use a warm filter in these situations but still for shadows or overcast I prefer the saturated look of Velvia. Provia of course is better when doing long exposures but I mostly use a digital camera these days for this kind of photography since the instant preview makes it easier to achieve the look I want.

Enjoy the rest of the images.
