still working away at my wife's paintings. I have taken the great advice to persevere with my 300mm Symmar S stopped down to f22 and popping my flash set up twice with the shutter left open. I am shooting on Velvia 100.
I process my own E6 and mixed up a fresh batch of solutions. Did the pre-heat, agitated as described and generally followed all the TETANAL instructions (including mixing the first developer in a separate room to the second developer bottle).
Previously I had shot flash on Provia.
The final result on the Velvia 100 seems to have a slight greenish tinge to the white wall background. The colours of the paintings themselves don't seem to be so much affected though I think I can see some effect.
Looking through the forums I see that Velvia has a reputation for getting a green bias particulalry on longer exposures.
The shutter during my shoot was open for about 4 - 5 seconds whilst flashing and waiting for the flash to cycle. It was night time though there might have been a little incident light from the top of the house.
I'm pretty sure I'm looking at Velvia's "green" tendancy but wondered if anyone else has had a similar experience?
