    hi there, as you can see the shadows on the girl's white dresses WERE going to blue and cyan..

    actually, the 160NC shows more cyan/blue on the white shadows than the 400NC shots....the 400NC was going towards a green cast on the shadows in question and thus, thinking about it easier to correct that the blue cast on the 160......

    ...talk to me about that guys.....

    Did those shadows go blue/cyan at all?
    Did you do any corrections in the shadows?

    I shot a wedding on Fuji 400H last year and in some shots the Bride's dress had a very slight blueness in the shadows. There's a thread about it here somewhere, and the replies I got said that this was a fairly common phenomenon for wedding photographers - apparently the brighteners used to make those dresses so white to our eyes render a slightly blue on film. There were a few other ideas too:

    i notice that the Portra 400H does not yield the blue cast BUT this was a boy's suit as opposed to the girls dress which is exactly like a wedding dress.....interesting....I wonder if anyone else can come in on this......I read the comments on the link thanks a lot!

    I read that even if there are no shadows if you pop some fill flash that has non UV correction for the tube the brighteners in the fabric can phosphoresce a bit.

    I should try it because I have some non UV tubes for a Norman 200B.

    Most tubes these days are corrected.

    If you enlarge it enough, you will see that there is a huge difference between 400NC and 160NC. I see it even in 11x14s printed from 4x5 film (about 2.5x linear enlargement). It is plain as day in 16x20s (4x linear enlargement).

    I shot a 36 exp. roll of Portra 800 two weeks ago. It's quite a good film. What worries me is that at $10 a roll it may not be around very much longer. There is a non-pro Fuji 800 film which goes for about $4 a roll. I think the Portra is a little better but it's a lot more expensive.

    Superia 800, the Fuji film you are talking about (my most-used color negative film), is typically only $3 something per roll, and it comes in a pro version in 20-roll Press packages. "Pro" means that the color balance is different than the consumer version, and the emulsions match roll to roll. The consumer version is designed to age into the proper color balance, while the pro version is made right at the proper color balance. I average about one pro pack a month. I really wish this emulsion was available in medium format and 4x5.
