hasselblad test 02.

on monday morning I was thrilled to finally be able to print some black and white photos taken with my Hasselblad - that was until I developed the film roll and found out about that terrible light leak. at first I thought the film must have jammed inside the tank - but when that afternoon I got two colour films back from the lab with the same light leak problem I knew it was the camera.
Hasselblad test 02:

Ilford FP4+ - Tokoinranta.
I took this roll last Saturday morning straight after visiting the Botanic Garden: I wanted to have something to print in my darkroom - but printing a half burnt roll isn't really pleasant. I have scanned those tiny bits of images that weren't burnt by the light leak. in two days I will share one last batch of circles from the third test roll I took.
P.S. I have contacted the shop where I bought the camera from: they are going to cover the expenses for me to buy a new light trap foil - I just hope I will be able to find one soon!

    1. thank you, Charlyn! :-) actually, the shop will pay for the light trap foil for me, but I am ordering it from another shop in Helsinki - which makes things easier and hopefully faster!

  4. So great that the shop sees they are responsible!
    But once again, I think there really is something special in your round pictures. E.g. the third one in this set couldn't be better in any other shape! Also the sixth one is just beautiful as a round version!

    1. non sei la prima a pensarlo! :-) in qualche caso, sembra quasi che il light leak abbia voluto rispettare appositamente alcuni pezzi dei fotogrammi! grazie, Emi! ♥
