Incredible India

Jodpur

Back from 12 days in “Incredible India”, in Delhi, Agra and Rajasthan. I carried over my DSLR but also the Hasselblad, nearly 10KG of stuff all in all including the tripod, but luckily we were travelling in hum , well,good conditions . Films have turned up from the lab yesterday and I started scanning them.

This old guy sits in the fort of Jodpur to be shot by tourist so don’t over estimate the picture.

Camera: Hasselblad 500 CM

Digital can wait

Valérie through Hasselblad magic

Yes, digital can wait! My 500 and so pictures from Indonesia taken with the D700 will have to hang around a temporary folder for a while : I collected 2 rolls of films from the shop Monday and I am amazed. How can these 24 shots, painfully taken over a couple of weeks which costs me nearly 1 EUR each please me so much? Well I don’t know really. Probably because of the pain and the cost. Nothing perfect here just 24 shots most of which I have no shame to show; pretty good hit ratio compare to the D world.

Paradox of the day: I had to use a bit of lightroom magic to make film looks nearly as good as digital!
