Fuji Velvia (35mm, 100 iso)

Velvia! Veelvia! Veeelvia! Call it! Oooops, this name, just for itself, its proper music, has an astonishing poetical resonance in the labyrinths of my mind...

One of my favourite films ever, Fuji Velvia 35mm 100 iso, cross-processed as loved by lomographers, will give us marvelous images, marvelous freakish colours, and not so freakish, but always very intense, as we all like. Also intense contrast (with the skills of our beloved and mythical LC-A+…)

I haven´t tried this film e6 processed, just c41. So I can´t talk about it e6 processed, but c41.

Reds, violets, purples, pinks, blues, greens, yellows, golds… I´m not so good at naming colours, so forgive me if I haven’t mentioned all of them well according to this film… But those colours I have named are all perfectly reached by this precious stone, Velvia… Let us see some examples, the best way (or at least one of the best) to know about this emulsion (and of course, an excellent excuse to stop writing…):

Shoot it, impress it with light! And we must destroy the preconception this film gives us a red or reddish atmosphere in all situations. It is false. This film deserves not preconceptions because its colour range it´s not narrow. So try to get all rainbow colours (and maybe others, I don´t know…) and you/we will see.

    OMG, the colors are wonderful!!! I'm so glad on my last visit to the lab I chose to buy Velvia, rather than Sensia which I usually get, can't wait to try!!!
