FUJIFILM SUPERIA 400 AND CLOUDY DAYS

Fujiflim superia 400 – warm on a cloudy day

Fujifilm Superia, a cheaper 35mm stock, but one of the ones I like to use frequently! Here in this shoot, it was a rainy cloudy day but the film makes it look warm. I’ve noticed it carries pink tones, especially on skin and sky, but this is nice to have when the light is flat and cold. This film would be my choice when the skies are tearing up a bit.

The following set of photos was taken on a shoot out in London with the Creative Eye photographers group and model Damu Lee. We started near St. James Park and walked to locations on the street from there. It was so nice to explore London doing something that I love, photography πŸ™‚

As you can probably tell from the photos above, I really like to be fluid with posing and if needed to give direction to just have fun. I like movement and not stiff poses. If something gets cut off in a movement, like the one below, that’s okay. It’s more about the feeling from the photo for me rather than technical posing correctness.

A lot of fashion photography is so serious! And more than a few models have said that they are not used to smiling in a shoot, which is industry standard perhaps. Why be so serious in life? I’ll quote Alan Watts now – “Why take so serious what the gods intended for play” speaking of course of life.

You can see the difference between the photos above, taken with Fujifilm Superia and the one below, taken with my digital Fuji. The one below is much cooler. We were using a portable flash in the one below as well, so that warms up the face a bit, but the difference is so noticeable for the rest of the image.
