    Fuji question

    I am switching to Fuji slide film for most of my color work. I am using velvia for most things including landscapes and astia for anything with a lot of white ( brides, snow...) my question is what do you use provia for?

    I use provia for my people shots, as well as alot of wildlife, provia is claimed to be the finest grained slide film on the market as well as being more neutral, I have also used it alot for doing artwork photography for catalog placment, I like provia alot more than I like astia, velivia of course is the king of saturation, but provia is a great film as well and has served me well over the years, I know many pros that won't shoot anything but provia.

    I use primarily Velvia for most of my work, but there are times I need something a bit more "true to life", and that is where Provia comes in. I use it for architectural studies, or for floral studies - when those images call for accuracy of color representation. I mentioned floral studies; sometimes the punchy colors of Velvia are right for that, but when shooting these subjects for a flower aficionado, accuracy counts more.

    I use provia for most everything except summer flower shots then it is Velvia. Velvia is just a but too over the top for anythng but flowers in my opinion.

    In my days as a commerical Lab Rat. My duties were to copy orginal art work and photographs. I used Astia for most of the jobs then use Provia for any work that the client wanted a bit more contrast or color saturation.
    I've used Provia for the same in my field work. Provia for a bit more umph but not overboard as Velvia can sometimes do.
