Velvia, the Beautiful

"Slides" by Wes Aldridge

I am almost ashamed to share this with everyone. You are looking at the slides from the first roll of slide film that I have ever shot.

The slides in the frame are processed from Fuji Velvia 50. I must confess, I am in love all over again. No digital shot I have ever taken can compare with the vivid colors of these slides. The colors simply explode from them. I was looking at these shots on the light board and thought I needed to commemorate the moment.

I bumped my ISO up to 400 and shot at f/8.0 handheld at 1/40th of a second. I was directly over the slides and focused on a shot of a goose that I was looking at through the viewing loupe.
