At Meteora with E6 slide film

For today’s post, a collection of photos I have shot at the beautiful location of Meteora, GREECE with E6 slide film.

My favorite slide film is Fuji Velvia 50, although I recently use the Velvia 100, which I also like. I consider Velvia to be the best emulsion for landscape photography (as many others do!). I have also shot Provia 100 and 400, but I was never really a great fan of the Provia.

Exposing correctly with slide film is not easy, especially with Velvia which has a very limited dynamic range. The use of ND filters is necessary in contrasty conditions , and you better nail your exposure or you end up with a mediocre photo.

Besides that, processing is very important , so a good lab is a must in order to get a good image. 

I used to view my 35mm slides on a projector, a great experience, but I haven’t shot 35mm slide film for a long time, and I don’t plan too, I will stick with medium and large format.
