Early Autumn '16

Fujichrome Velvia 50
Nikon 6006 with AF Nikkor 28-85mm f/3.5-4.5


Velvia 50 has more green undertones, while Velvia 100 goes more toward magenta-purple.  Sometimes I like one better, or the other, but they're both great.

Shown here, an early-autumn scene with Nyssa sylvatica leaves (a.k.a. blackgum).  This was late September, I think.

There's that 3D look.  Is it the color and contrast?  Or is it something more? 

Nothing else will satisfy but to get more of this film.  That is all.

Yashica MAT 124G
Kodak Ektar 100


Ektar is a fantastic landscape film, and as far as I know it's the closest that a color neg film has ever gotten to the appearance of slide film... but it's not a slide film, and I still want Elite Chrome 100.

I really like Kodak Ektar, though.  Color negative films provide a look that you can't get from the other film types.

The slide film version of this.  For reasons unknown, this rain puddle looks as though it could be oil that seeped up from the forest floor. 

The Velvia 100 worked well for this picture.  Actually it underscores what I've been saying about film.  The slide film does more than just bring the colors to life;  it gives the picture almost a 3D aspect. 

When I look at digital pictures, sometimes it's "yeah, that's pretty cool", but when I pick up a 35mm slide with its electric colors... wow.
