I’ve just received the first batch of scans back from my new Hasselblad 501cm; the results were ‘eclectic’, for two reasons – firstly, I shot the first roll on Christmas Day after drinking a bottle of Prosecco to myself. I think that’s as far as I need to explain that. The other reason is that I still haven’t got my head around the square composition of the Hasselblad again, after years of shooting 35mm and various none-square medium formats. Something else I struggle with is the back to front image in the waist level finder; it’s all very counter-intuitive, so I may invest in a prism finder.
All the images here I made with the Hasselblad 501cm and 80mm T* lens. All film is Kodak Portra 800, except for the bottom photograph, which is fifteen years expired Fuji reala 100
