Samuel,
Thanks for the kind words.
I used to attend the outdoor meetings (referred to as "cruises") of a local vintage car club to photograph. But not being interested in antique cars, I'd look for detailed graphic compositions to shoot instead of entire automobiles. Many times people would come up and ask what I was shooting. I'd always invite them to take a look through the viewfinder, and typically they would exclaim, "Wow! I never noticed that before!"

What a bunch of well-composed shots! That film is quite contrasty isn't it? Or did you shoot in a manner that made it so?

Shaun,
Thanks for the compliment.
You need to keep in mind that what you are viewing are scans of slides, that have been adjusted in Photoshop to try and replicate what I see on the screeen when the original slides are projected.
I don't consider the film to be intrisically "contrasty" although one shot (the chalk artist) is quite contrasty because of the lighting it was shot in (bright, sunny cloudless day).
As I've stated elsewhere, I always rate my slide film normally (except when pushing 400 ISO to 800 or 1600 because I'm shooting indoors in low light and need the extra speed to handhold) but typically underexpose by about 1/3-1/2 stop to saturate the colours, and of course prefer overcast days to eliminate the harsh shadows and lower the contrast.

The film color is so nice and soft. Digital never does that. How do you process the film? Do you digitize yourself?

Don,
I love the colours and look of projected slides. There is nothing like it, and I'm afraid the what you see on your computer screen of my shots is just a pale representation of what the slides look like when projected.
The only film I've ever processed myself was one roll of black and white film of human chromosomes that I shot through a microscope while I worked in the Genetics Department at Sick Children's Hospital here in Toronto about 40 years ago.
All my slide film has been processed by various labs here in Toronto since I began shooting it back in the very late 1970s.
Today it is processed for me by a National Canadian chain called Black's.
I do however digitaize my images myself using a Minolta Dimage scanner and do what little post-processing I do in Photoshop.

Beautiful photographs. The colors are wonderful, especially the blues. But without your fine compositions the colors would be far less exciting.

Really love this series. I never shot Sensia 100 but have shot a lot of Sensia 400. I see the 100 has a lot of the lovely qualities the 400 has. Softness is a great descriptor. Not that the detail is not fine, the color transitions always seemed so smooth with these films. A lovely, silkynesss that was dramatically different that Fuji's other slide films.

Thanks Art, I appreciate the compliment.
Tim, except for low light interior shooting I've never seen the need to shoot with film faster than 100 ISO, so I've not used a lot of Fuji 400 (or Ektachrome 400 either for that matter) but when I do it is pushed one or two stops and often has a wonderfully-horrible mix of daylight, fluorescent and incandescent lighting found in the St. Lawrence Market, a large indoor farmer's market here in Toronto, so I'm unfamiliar with its qualities when processed as rated.
