    Does anyone here do people photography with slide film?

    Just curious because I do mostly people photography and rarely shoot with slide film. I would like to shoot with MF slide (or 35 mm) but I never get a chance to use it.

    When you saw the shot did you wish you'd chosen print film?

    I have shot people portraits using most of the currently produced e6 films in 120 (some against my better judgment). My favorite is definitely Astia 100F.

    Yes, the slide films that I prefer for shooting people are:

    Fuji Astra
    Fuji Provia
    Kodak E100SW

    My most recent purchase was a year ago. Therefore, I do not know if they are still produced or available.

    Shot a lot of slide film, primarily Kodachrome until the rolls ran out last year. Also, TechPan developed as a transparancy some years ago. All in MF. Nothing like it in my books for color shoots. Makes prints look so bland. Only advantage of shooting 35mm over mf is that not all processing labs will mount mf in holders but return it uncut. Other advantage is finding an old projector is easier for 35mm than mf. Advantage is that the times enlargement is less for the same size projection resulting in holding color, contrast and detail better provided the projector lenses are equal quality and the bulb outputs are comparable at a given distance. B&w projected can really be beautiful.

    Threads merged. Most people see new threads in the "new posts" view, so there is no need to create duplicate threads in more than one subforum.

    And in answer to the question, yes--Astia 100F usually, when I do.

    Not so much anymore but I used to do a lot. My favorite slide film is Kodak E-100G (for everything - not just people).

    Shot loads of Agfa Scala in both 35mm and 120--a film I desperately miss. 6x6 and 67 slides are jaw-dropping on Kindermann and Mamiya Cabin projectors--Scala portraits particularly. Still slowing shooting thru my pile of 120 E100GX. The only constraint I'm feeling now is the thinning of tight E6 lines in my area.
