A Roll Of Velvia 50

with 8 comments

It occurred to me recently that the last time I shot a roll of Velvia was about two years ago! Though I’ve been loving VSCO’s Velvia 50 preset, there’s nothing quite like shooting the real deal. Finally got through a roll this past week and had the results scanned and mounted.

Of course, the best way to enjoy 35mm slides is to run them through a projector. Fortunately, we’ve had one in the family for many years. Despite being just about as old as the camera I used to shoot these slides, it still works beautifully. Looking forward to filling some empty projector magazines 🙂

  1. That’s right, the only way to enjoy slides is through a projector.

  4. Nice work Velvia 50 was a well used film in my world at one time. We used to shoot it at ISO 32.

  6. These seem more desaturated than the velvia i’m used to, how did you achieve the effect? did you rate it at something other than 50?

    • I shot this at 50 and processed it normally. I think the more muted output has a lot to do with the lens I’m using, the v1 Summilux.
