Earlier this year I traveled to St. Augustine Florida with some fellow photographers for a fun-filled weekend of shooting. Some of my favorite shots from the weekend were taken at the historic Flagler College campus on an overcast day.
I decided to pull out my Hasselblad 500C, buy 4 rolls of Ilford Delta 400 120, bring a few film backs and carry my Minolta auto meter IV. I had not shot with this camera in at least ten years and it was a blast pulling it out of its sleek Zero Halliburton case. For the duration of the trip I shot with with 60mm lens, and realized after the film was developed that the focusing screen was slightly out of alignment or that I needed a brighter screen.
Loading the film was quite the trip down memory lane and depressing the shutter reminding me of how great the Hasslblad sounds. Click. Wind. Smile.
I processed the film at Zebra Color in St. Petersburg Florida and was quite happy with my negative densities. Zebra sold me the film and uses an Ilford replenishing developer.
