Fuji Velvia 50: Hues and Contrast

4

Fuji Velvia 50 ASA is one of the films that i've enjoyed using; It yielded different hues and great contrast when cross-processed. Read on!

My first impression on the Fuji Velvia 50 ASA was that it yields strong greenish hues just like it’s sibling, Fuji Provia 100F, and upon using it, I was surprised to see not just green but different colors too. In fact, in some photos, green was not dominant at all.

Let me show you the photos that I took with it.

This photo would, for me, be a fine example of 50 ASA Fuji Velvia’s range of hues. As seen in the photo above, it yielded a greenish photo with yellows and blues. Based on this roll, I’ve concluded that the color dominance is based on the colors of the subjects in the frame. Blue Skies with a well-lit frame, it yielded great contrast with no specific color dominance.

On overcast days, It yielded a photo with green as the dominant color.

On subjects with strong colors, it increases its contrast, making it really noticeable.

These conclusions are not accurate because cross-processing doesn’t exactly yield predictable effects on photos. There will be exceptions to the conclusions that I’ve mentioned above, such as the very first photo on this article with 2 cars. It’s well-lit with a blue sky, yet green is the dominant color. It’s the unpredictability that makes slide films really fun to use. So I leave you with this photo:

Simply to remind you that green isn’t the only hue that this film is capable of producing! Keep on shooting! Lomo on!

Fuji Velvia 50 RVP 35mm is super-saturated and as high-res as film can get. When cross-processed, greens become greener and reds and yellows pop. See the whole range of colour slides in our Shop.

    Tinker on the fly: A color filter made from spoiled film

    Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.

    This film has fine grain, especially when cross-processed in C41. And if you use a Lomo camera, maybe the LC-A or the LC-Wide, the results will be more interesting with strong vignettes in your pictures!
