Here is a few pictures from the shoot last week!! Yesterday I received two rolls of 35mm negatives, and I scanned them immediately when I got home. The light conditions were super hard to work with, and I was quite nervous about how the pictures would turn out. I’m not experienced with this kind of photography at all, so I was quite thrown by the whole thing. I will not go so far as to say that I was pleasantly surprised, but I got the shots I needed for the project! Photographing in the winter when the light is so cold is not a walk in the park, so using colour film would be quite ambitions. Black and white film is so much more forgiving, and leaves more up to the contrasts, rather than the colour, in the light to do the job. I chose a little bit of both.
The four last rolls of film will be ready in a few days and I really hope they turned out good. Using a Hasselblad camera was very exiting, and everything looked so beautiful. Fingers crossed there is something beautiful hiding in second delivery of negatives. This next picture was shot with Hasselblad with a polaroid back. It almost looks like there is a blue filter on, but it’s just a developing error. Perfect imperfections!
The polaroids all turned out better than I expected. They were the very first pictures I took that day, and I was working with an external light meter for the first time in my life. The only downside of taking polaroids with Hasselblad is that the area that is exposed is so small. I would have liked it to fill out more of the frame, but since it is a medium format camera, this 6x6cm exposure is what you’ve got to work with. I will make a follow up to this post with results from the 120mm film! Hope you’re all enjoying your weekend. Copenhagen is beautifully dressed in sunshine today (and I’m locked up in an office working on a midterm paper. Life!).
