MANHATTAN – I started the day on the far West Side in the 50s doing digital images. I finished near home shooting film in my new, used Hasselblad Superwide C. I’m pushing working with film so I can make every mistake possible (leaving home without a dark slide, shooting with the lens cap on, etc.), learning along the way.

This one came out nicely. I framed so that the door was centered in the square format. In processing the film I didn’t mix the developer sufficiently, so the top of the film was streaked and over-cooked. That’s the left side of the image, which I had to crop off, leaving an asymetrical image. Probably better than the concept I had shooting.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – Some full frontal structures in good winter light. Shooting film still. It’s a major time sink, and very much like having a job, doing film on a daily basis. Shooting with a Hasselblad Superwide C on Tri-X film.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – Still experimenting with the Hasselblad Superwide, shooting film. The first image is with film; I really like the rendering of the snow, which is difficult to get right. The second image is a digital capture – a bit unfair because the light wasn’t as interesting.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – I know that the barn below doesn’t look like much, but its part of an important project for me: film. Yes, I’m experimenting with film. I recently purchased a Hasselblad Superwide C on the used market – used Hasselblad film gear sells for very little now. It’s apparently in good shape. I’m putting it through its paces, testing its functioning and practicing making images with it. I’ll be shooting with it on and off over the next few weeks.
