Shooting with slide film: Velvia 50

Despite shooting film for nearly three years now, I only recently shot with slide film for the first time. The advantage of slide film is that it's the highest quality. But, it's also less forgiving. It doesn't have nearly the exposure latitude of negative film. Having that exposure latitude (i.e. the freedom to overexpose without ruining your shot) makes shooting a bit more relaxed. What do I think after shooting one roll of slide film? Well, it's only one roll, and the colors are true, even if the shots themselves are a bit boring, but my gut tells me that it won't usually be worth the extra effort. Taking meter readings before every shot, I got annoyed by about the sixth frame. I'd rather shoot more, and think less. But I do have four more rolls of Velvia 50.
