behind the scenes: instant film photography

A quick, "behind the scenes" look at my process of shooting with my Hasselblad 500c with a polaroid back, and fuji fp 100c film.

This is a completely new venture for me - my first video.   But I thought the quickest, easiest way to demonstrate my process would be to film it.  And I have to admit that I really enjoyed filming this.  Maybe it is my constant need to learn something new?

So often I post the finished product here, but I thought I'd try to give you a glimpse into what it is like to shoot with a medium format camera and instant film - having an actual, tangible picture in your hand minutes after you press the shutter.   And of course, now I have so many more ideas about videos -  like how to attach the polaroid back to the Hasselblad, how to load the film, etc.  Questions I had as I was beginning with film. This totally has me thinking about getting a tripod for future videos.....

A few credits:

Filmed with: Nikon D600

Music: Adventure, Darling by Gillicuddy

I created the entire film in iMovie on my Mac.  Pretty simple and straightforward.

Side note: I just love the sound of the Hassie's shutter.  There's nothing quite like it.

And finally, images that I have taken with the Hasselblad here.
