    Kodachrome. Use it while you can, for the rest of the year. I think it's the best for natural colour portraits. After that, Provia & Astia.

    Another vote for Astia 100F. Astia has a remarkable latitude for a slide film, which makes it an ideal choice for beginners I think. Colours are as realistic as you can get them and it is also very fine grained.

    Provia 100F, as is, or pushed 1 stop.
    Velvia for people photography is akin to shooting Bambi — too awful to contemplate.

    I have never, nor do i now, known any Fuji film that produced natural colours.
    (But seriously)

    But i guess what's "natural" depends a lot on taste too.

    No, many in the UK preferred Fuji slide films because they gave more faithful colour rendering.

    I recently shot my first (and so far only) roll of Sensia 400, purely because of the speed. The colour rendition was the most natural I've seen from a c/trans film for a long time and grain was not an issue when projected in my living room on a four foot screen. For my application I preferred it to the colour rendition and grain of the old Kodachrome 200.

    As Ian says, Fuji has always had a hardy band of followers in the UK. Back in the 1970s when the Fuji lab was in Swindon, the turn around time for pre-paid films was remarkable, though that was probably due in part to the superior postal service the UK enjoyed in those days.

    If you can still find some (it was discontinued late last year), Ektachrome 100 Plus (EPP) was the most natural film made since Ektachrome 100 EPN was discontinued.

    And that EPN was the best i have ever seen.
    I switched to that from Ektachrome 64 and (believe it or not) Kodachrome 25. Why do good things go away, while the less desirable stuff remains?

    Well it's probably been disco'd for 20 years but Agfachrome 64 was my favorite for colour fidelity.
