Purple And Green, The Name of the Game: Fuji Velvia 50 (35mm, 50 ISO) User-Review


Lots of nice oranges in sunlit pictures, as well as purples and greens – that’s what I got with the cross-processed Fuji Velvia 50.

I used my first roll of Velvia 50 last month and had it cross processed.

I was taking pictures around sundown and just before that so i got a lot of nice oranges in sunlit pictures, but also a lot of deep greens and purples in the greenery shots i took.

Also, I was taking this roll with an SLR camera that adjusts exposure, rather than a traditional Lomo camera that would give you crazier color and results.

    I recently x-pro'd my first velvia 50, too. My colours were massively blue-green, though. Also, everything looked about a step overexposed, despite me using my trusty Yashica Mat's light meter throughout.

    I never understand how this damn stuff works. E6 is just so much easier! Heh.

    Nice shots. I should try the velvia 50 with my slr. Did you shoot on auto or manual?
