This will be the second post in a month I've shown images from my Olympus XA. The XA. Before Korea, I shot a lot of slide film (mostly in large format). So although my collection of film has grown, much of it is slide film. Moving from Boston has presented itself with problems of finding a lab to develop my film. I'm currently in between labs, but am leaning towards Citizens.
So if you're unfamiliar with Slide film I'll give you a brief explanation why I like it. Typically people shoot negative film to get enlarged and printed. With Slide film, it was originally intended to be put in a carousel and projected onto a wall, and not to be enlarged. Along came digital and changed all that. Now people shoot slide film because the look it gives film. There are a ton of presets in photoshop that people use to make their digital shots emulate slide film.
That's not for me. I shoot slide film because of the tones it produces, They are rich, and not exactly contrasty, but the tones are rich.
