Hasselblad Vespa


My friend whose ET3 I shot on film recently see here used to be a photography assistant some years ago and along the way acquired a Hasselblad 500C square format camera.

After taking the ET3 set, I was lent the Hasselblad for the afternoon and treated my own vespa to an expired roll of 120 Fujifilm with 12 exposures; 11 of which came out pretty well. The Hasselblad 500C is a thing of beauty with it's purposeful heavy weight, array of dials and buttons, removable metal plate and collapsible viewfinder. it takes some getting used to with the image reversed when peering in to the large square viewfinder; meaning left is right and right is left when positioning the camera for the shot. When correctly teed up and the shot is ready, the camera emits a very satisfying 'whump' when clicking the shutter button.. so much so, you feel like you should be under a black cloth!

Check out the full set I took here I'm sure I will be returning to the Hasselblad in the near future..
