Some Fuji Provia 100 images

Since I am mainly a plant and vegetation photographer, I always preferred Fuji Provia in my film bodies. As long as they were paid by my boss, I had no problem using this quite expensive film. And I always liked the colour rendering of this film, whereas other Fuji films tend to make the grass blueish. Well, here some examples from a trip to a little island (Rottum) at our coast. There is only a biological research station on this island, and usually one is not allowed to visit the island. But I was invited to do some work there, and I agreed....

I especially like number 4 - the limited DOF. What a place! Magical.

I use Provia 400 as my slide film of choice. I find I need the extra speed living here in the UK. I wonder how the two films compare?

in terms of saturation should be the same, the difference is in the grain
w/ 400X, i'm looking at 645 slides on my 5.5x loupe and i can see no grain

Velvia and astia don't work very well for green subtilities, in my experience (and the experience of many of my colleques!). Too blue, too dull, not enough yellow, well, all in all not suitable for botanical photos.

I have worked on several botanical books in the last 10 years, and every time again, Provia photos proved to be the best for this kind of work. Probably it doesn't work for skin tones, but for vegetation, where different plant species have to be recognised by their specific green, it is better than all other films.
