A Linguistic bit of fun A Hassel blad by a Hasselblad. My wife had put so hazel twigs in a jar of water and they sprouted tiny leaves I took this shot in window light using the Carl Zeiss 80mm FE with all three of my extension tubes attached. I used a fav film Rollei 80s and stand developed it in Caffenol for 50 mins at 20℃ with agitation for only the first minute and then left to rest in a water bath for 49mins.

Here’s another shot from the same roll. This time a little more high key. I used the same method with Adox adonal as my last shot.

I developed my film as follows at 20°C:-
Adox Adonol 1:100 (That’s 495mls water to 5 ml Adonal)
Inversions for the first minute. Then left to stand 29 mins then 3 more inversions and left to stand for a further 30mins. Stopped with water for one minute inversions constantly and then Fixed 5mins (T-Max fixer)and washed for 10mins.

If anyone is reading this and wondering about using 120 film, let me just say that 120 roll film is a joy to work with. 12 shots on a roll suits me in addition to my mind it’s a lot less of a fiddle to load a tank with.I have never had any trouble with jamming a reel, then having to start again in the dark. So go and try some :0)

Portraits in the Snow

 

Sunday was a beautiful day here in the east of Norway. I got the chance to follow my friend on his rounds up in the woods checking his traps. The thaw is setting in and the snow is getting a little rotten in places and it’s easy to fall though to your knees. I know as I did it a few times. It’s great fun while trying not to get your Hasselblad buried in the snow, while struggling to get out of the hole you’ve made for yourself. Luckily I didn’t bury my camera and I got back to the pick-up without incident.

I’d asked my mate if he wouldn’t mind posing for me and he said we would. At Midstua where we had parked the pick-up there are two cabins. I chose the most weather beaten of the two to use as a background. There was no need for reflectors and such as my subject was surround with the reflector nature had provided for us. Luckily the sun wasn’t too bright and provided enough to light the scene without being too over powering. I set up my camera and shot off a roll of Rollei 80s (We only had time for the one)which later I developed and scanned in the same way I did with the tulip shots I posted last week here.

Here is a poor iPhone shot of the set-up.
