Has any photographers ever try Fuji new slide film Velvia 100F for glamour? I'm thinking about using slides for my shoots. Which slide film one do you use? Thanks,

i have used the velvia 100, but not for people. it's a great film for landscapes and night photography. ditto jayson -- use astia for your glamour work. provia works nicely too.

this one was shot on astia:

Contrary to popular opinion, I use Velvia quite a lot (not tried the new one though). It is very sharp and has great color saturation, but the trick is not to use it in warm settings (like new wood construction or around tan rocks) or last light of the day, as it will get very warm. For those situations and in studio I use Astia, and if I had to pick one film, it would be Astia. BUT - I love Velvia when I can use it. These two are shot on Velvia and have virtually no color correction. The studio shot was done with an unfiltered ringflash, which I did intentionallyy because of the higher UV of a bare flash tube. This is for a 2004 calendar and if you saw the 12x18 test prints you'd be stunned at how sharp they are. I believe the higher UV around water (beaches, lakes, pools) cuts the warmth of the film, because I also use Velvia under these circumstances, and even just on sand or outdoors (again, as long as we're not around warm settings).



BTW, the model in both (a few years apart) is one of my long-time favorites, Pamela Paulshock.

Usually Provia 100f or 400f, but sometimes Velvia.
