EXPOSURES WITH ILFORD BLACK AND WHITE FILMS. Low Intensity Reciprocity Failure describes the phenomenon where if the same total exposure is given to photographic material over a longer period of time then the density of the image generated is lower (effective speed is reduced).

Only use Velvia when you really, really want strong colors. While I find the colors to be rather accurate in hue, it’s easy for it to go over the top with saturation. The longer your exposure the more saturated the colors will become, particularly in those minutes well after sunset or before sunrise.

You may chose to create silhouettes from certain scenes by metering for highlights, or even capture broad shadow detail by sacrificing everything else. The main thing to remember is that this is just a starting point for you to begin or continue your own journey!

What kind of meter does Fuji Velvia use?
