Fuji Superia 400, 35 mm

by Todd on March 10, 2011

Here are a few snaps from my Nikon F100, on Fuji Superia 400, using the Zeiss 100/2 Makro-Planar: a random theatre student I met while doing headshots for the department’s faculty, a Mexican restaurant in Solon, and our cat Jim Jong Il. Very fine grain to this film!

Lovely shots! Are these raw scans or did you boost the colors in post?

Thanks, Wayne. It’s been so long I can’t remember precisely what was done to these, but I don’t ever boost colors through saturation or any sort of plugin, etc. But I do almost always make some small tweaks, so they aren’t raw scans. I usually have to remove some dust/hair, scratches and such. Beyond that, best guess is a slight contrast bump with Curves (sometimes has a subtle effect on deeper colors and mids), and a round of sharpening.

Cool, thanks for the response. I found you’re blog while browsing superia examples. I’m moving into film and recently acquired an F100 and a Mamiya 645af(delivering tomorrow). So far, I like portra most but for everyday shooting superia looks really good. I’m glad you could show how nicely this film renders color. Cheers!
