Last week Emma gave us some medium format film [ Ilford HP5 Plus ] so that we could learn processing and then printing from negatives in the future. We all have the same film, and we have been given some medium format cameras like Mamiya 7, Mamiya RB67 etc. to use for this assignment. For me my Hasselblad 500cm was the only choice, and because I wanted to take some portraits – Zeiss Sonnar 150mm f4 T* also went to my already heavy backpack.
I took Ilford film from Emma and a couple of rolls of T-Max 400 just in case. There was also Fuji X-Pro1 with 18mm f2 as a digital back-up and general camera.
We set out for Stratford a bit late, around midday of a heavily overcast Saturday. When we arrived at our destination about an hour later I was happy to see that clouds in Stratford were a bit more defined, and I knew the should look great on a black and white film… And so I got the hass on a tripod and shot a roll of t-max first to make sure everything works as it should, using Sekonic light meter to make sure the exposition was set right. I used fuji to show Katie what I’m doing.
Below you’ll find a couple of pictures from fuji. As soon as I get negatives developed I will add another post with images scanned from film.
