I used to shoot a lot of Provia 400F for slides, Portra 400nc for color negatives, and Hp5/T-max for B&W back in the day.
Now I'm trying out pretty much all there is out there to find my new favorites, so far I've shot Provia 400X, E100G,
Portra 400, Ektar 100, and Hp5/Delta 400. But I definitely need to do further testing and also see how they scan.
I do mostly fashion/people/lifestyle/travel, not really into landscape, so velvia is of no interest to me. My main concern
is usually how the film renders skin-tones. I'm also usually not that interested in realistic renderings, but rather like my
films to have a certain character.
If you have any tips & tricks I'd love to hear them too, like for example overexpose color negatives 1-stop and underexpose
slides 1/3-stop for punchier colors and more contrast.
