Fujichrome Velvia 50

Tue Oct 9, 2012, 5:23 PM

After shooting some architecture with Velvia 100, I've decided to have some fun with Velvia 50. Like the previous series, in this one I also used Praktica MTL5b and some Pentacon lenses (50mm f:1.8 and 29mm f:2.8, although I also own 200mm f:4 but for some reason I don't use it). I bought the film in late April this year in a shop called Praxis (pretty much the best place for buying photographic film in Croatia). To be honest, I've had a pretty shitty summer due to some postponed faculty related stuff, so pretty much nothing interesting happened, but some of these photos have a deeper background story (at least for me).

For instance, this photo of ficho's new bike. It was just a few days old when I took this photo. He crashed breaking a collar bone just a few days later, and because some complications, he can't ride a bike for two more years. I think he has even sold the bike in the meantime :(

On this one there are my three bike buddies. The one on the right just got a great job in Osijek, so he is moving there for a year and a half. I guess we won't do much mountain biking together for a while.

This is a classic landscape photo. Just like on all the others, no corrections of any kind were applied. These are the pure vivid colors of Velvia 50. The photo was taken with Pentacon 29mm f:2.8 @ something between f:8 and f:16 with 1/125 s exposure. Since it was a bright sunny day, if you take a look at this chart, you'll see  that my memory is probably right :).

Those few are from my grandma's garden. They are really special for me because she has terminal cancer, and honestly I don't know if I will be taking pictures of those garden dwarfs next summer :(.

On this one is my friend TCvetkovic, also a mountain biker, but as it turns out, a damn good barbecue maker. This was taken before one of the most epic barbecues I've ever had. And I've had some pretty epic barbecues. It was also the high point of my summer :D

This here is a cliché, but somehow, the more I look at it, the more I like it. I'd say it's the colors :D

This is the 4th lake i Maksimir park. The first photo was taken in late April, and the second one less than a week ago, in early October. Those two are the only photos that I had to pull out the blacks a little bit. The contrast was just a bit too strong.  


Velvia is really a great daylight film with high-image quality, superb granularity, and world-class levels of image color saturation and vibrancy. I know this sounds crazy, but somehow all those relatively fresh memories appear much more vivid than on digital photos.
