    Here's the biggest reason why I like Sensia100 or Astia100: its latitude. When scanned, you can adjust curves to find details from highlights that seem quite blown out, and shadows are good as well. And, projecting the slides in a dark room will reveal this shadow detail even without any painful digital processing .
    I would not call that creative, myself. Pretty straight forward. Definitely manipulated all to hell, though, at least by my definition. Looks tremendously bad to me. Might as well have shot digital if that's what you get in the end.

    Anyway those studio-lit portraits dont give much idea about the film itself, unless you have experience from that kind of shooting. Even if they are not much manipulated afterwards.

    That looks like it's been Photoshoped.

    Hello Tom,

    I've solved my problem. As I said earlier, I've used Porta NC and loved its pastel colours. The problem was I always found it a nightmare to scan as I could never quite get the hang of correcting the orange film base consistently so I got 'faithful' colours.

    I know APUG isn't the place to discuss this in detail, but I can wholeheartedly recommend ColorNeg, a Photoshop plug-in that allows scanning faithful to the original negative film colour:

    Now that I've got this fixed, I'll keep using Portra 160 NC rather than looking for a tranny film with a similar look...!

    Cheers,
    Gavin
