A quick, “behind the scenes” look at my process of shooting with my Hasselblad 500c with a polaroid back, and fuji fp 100c film.
This is a completely new venture for me – my first video. But I thought the quickest, easiest way to demonstrate my process would be to film it. And I have to admit that I really enjoyed filming this. Maybe it is my constant need to learn something new?
So often I post the finished product here, but I thought I’d try to give you a glimpse into what it is like to shoot with a medium format camera and instant film – having an actual, tangible picture in your hand minutes after you press the shutter. And of course, now I have so many more ideas about videos – like how to attach the polaroid back to the Hasselblad, how to load the film, etc. Questions I had as I was beginning with film. This totally has me thinking about getting a tripod for future videos…..
A few credits:
Filmed with: Nikon D600
I created the entire film in iMovie on my Mac. Pretty simple and straightforward.
Side note: I just love the sound of the Hassie’s shutter. There’s nothing quite like it.
And finally, images that I have taken with the Hasselblad here.
