Thumbs up

Previous /Next

I have developed two films from sundays photoshoot, and I`m very pleased. One of the rolls were from the Holga, and it had one perfect frame. I`ll post it next week.
Most of the frames were either too dark, or too much out of focus... It`s so easy to forget to keep a certain distance from the subject: 1.2 meters is the closest I can get!
The frames from the Hasselblad were perfectly exposed, but two or three were a little out of focus. I shot at f.4 with a 150 mm because I love the way the subject separates from the background when I shoot wide open.Here`s an example.
F.4 means a very narrow depht of field, and that`s why I easily miss the focusing. I should use a tripod, but hate it too much. A Hasselblad is slow enough as it is.

It bis true that such a shallow depth can result in out of focus portraits... however, sometimes I found it almost desirable for the soft focus effect it creates.
