Had some fun while shooting wearenothing on their most recent tour. Decided to lug my Hasselblad around with my polaroid back and an a12 film back, a few rolls of Ilford Delta 3200 film and a pack of Fuji FP-3000b instant film. Up for a challenge and an urge of experimentation I used a sync cord and a hot shoe mount to use my Nikon SB 600 flash with my Hasselblad. Not too sure if I could even use my SB 600 with this type of camera without radio triggers or even the outcome of the few rolls of film I had I just went for it. I holed up in a booth next to the stage with the pa literally inches away from my head and worked on my focus zone through the waist level view finder before the bands started. Knowing I would have a lot of light from my flash and I’d be working with slower shutter speeds I knew I’d be shooting at f:22 and my depth of field would be large and I would not lose too much focus give or take a foot on the field preview markers on my lens. This was the first time I shoot a show with my Hasselblad and to my surprise the results we not as bad as I anticipated. I have more images up from this show on my website
New photos of A Great Big Pile Of Leaves, you can see more over on my website. This year has been above par for shows, and next week is actually nuts, but at the moment these guys are hovering at the top of the list. Come back soon please.
