Got a new toy to play with for an amazing price on Ebay…a hasselblad 500c/m camera. The appeal? It shoots square images and it has to be manually focused and hand wound for each frame (which just plain feels COOL) and did I mention that it shoots square? Plus, my friend, Catherine creates some of the most captivating and powerful images I’ve ever seen with her hasselblad, so I was in large part inspired by her work.
The following images are from my first roll shot through the hassy. My girl was being a frog and a ballerina, and with 10 images per roll, these are the only ones that are semi-focused, the rest are an abysmal blur. I’m definitely spoiled with the autofocus on my digital camera. Adore these though.
