backlight and hasselblad

After an afternoon shoot today, I came home to beautifully diffused light. Thanks to the overcast skies.  I quickly grabbed my Hasselblad, slapped on the polaroid back and a package of pack film to shoot, yet again. No complaints here though, I love shooting.  I set up a small table against a window with sheer curtains, a perfect light diffuser and clicked away. Flora and Fauna were my muses. I must add, the softness of the images from the polaroid back makes everything look romantic, to me. Here are some of the images.

  • i agree, i can’t get enough of that romantic instant fujifilm on my hasselblad lately, as i think you know. love your crop of the ivy in the second image.

  • I love that soft light and the softness of the focus, too.
    I’ve been wanting to borrow a Hasselblad and a Polaroid back from work lately and this might be the push I needed.

  • I love all of these, but that last one did me in. It makes me sad to think that I never got any pola action with my RZ67!

  • So romantic Cindy. Where in the world did you get that tablecloth? Do you know what type of material it is? It has amazing texture.
