Rolleiflex 2.8D + Fujifilm Velvia 100 = Pow! / by Jana Uyeda

I posted a few quick shots earlier this week from a roll of Fujifilm Velvia 100 that I shot with my Rolleiflex 2.8D in Point Defiance Park. Although the scans really make the color and saturation of these frames pop, it's nothing compared to viewing the actual slides on a light table. I love the way this Velvia 100 renders reds and blues and I love that I chose to upgrade my Canoscan 8800F to an Epson V700. It was a big splurge, but since scanning is an integral part of my workflow, I see it as an investment in my work.

Here are a few more of the dahlias from Point Defiance Park. I didn't do much post work beyond cropping and bumping the levels a touch. I hope Fujifilm continues to provide film shooters (and our numbers are steady, if not growing) with quality color reversal film like the Velvia line in all its formats.

Side note: These angles would have been very awkward with a traditional camera.  Viva TLR!
