My workflow with Velvia 100 seems to result in what can only be described as overexposure as the end result. I meter Provia 100F at iso 125 and get dead on results. I also use Velvia 50 metered at 50 and get dead-on results. When I do the same with Velvia 100 (not F) I am getting blown out highlights and the look of overexposure by at least 1/2-1 stop. Please note these are snow scenes with blue skies. I do my own developing with a JOBO processor, 6 step kits and 3010 expert drums using the recommended 7:30 as the initial developing time.
My question would be what have others noted? Should I decrease my initial developing step in time or start metering this film at 160 or maybe even 200? Im going to be doing some testing but wanted to ping the panel to see if anybody else noted anything similar or had some insight that might be helpful.
