Fuji Superia 1600 a first try


I was kindly gifted some ‘fast’ film by @roo_roo_s on Twitter amongst them a couple of rolls of Fujifilm Superia 1600. I have never shot a fast colour film before so was very interested in how it would look

As per a previous post, I am putting up most of the shots, good or bad, well composed or not so I can see how it worked or didn’t in various situations and you can too.

The camera was my trusty Olympus OM1 and no filters were used this time. Β I hope this is helpful for you all as it was for me. Β I would also like to thank @TwinLensReflux on Twitter for the very helpful mentoring, reminding me that making the black colours look like black goes a long way.

  1. Very interesting colour palette. Reds very prominent, some other colours maybe a bit muted? Perhaps the light that day? Slightly harsh feeling though I can’t say why I think that. I have a roll waiting for me to try; really glad to have seen this. Thanks
