Visiting Wolfvile Pt.1

A few weeks ago, my partner and I managed to take a day trip to Wolfville, NS, to visit some friends (and of course to take some photos!). While there, I shot two rolls of film: the following roll of Fujifilm Superia Premium 400, as well as a roll of Ilford HP5+ that I pushed to 1600. Since the colors in Wolfville are stunning this time of year, I was particularly excited about this roll.

If you’ve never heard of Fuji Superia Premium, you’re definitely not alone. It’s a Japan-only film that’s very hard to find in the west (in my experience at least). In terms of results, it’s a lot like Fuji Superia Xtra 400 but with slightly “redder” tones. It’s also supposed to render Japanese skin tones better which is why it’s primarily sold there. Personally I love how it looks, but I also love Fuji Superia Xtra. I don’t really find an enormous difference between the two so I don’t think it’s worth overpaying for Superia Premium, but If you happen to see it in stock somewhere for a reasonable price, certainly give it a try!
