I got my first shots back from my test roll with the Hasselblad 500c/m. I have a ways to go, but here is my start. There are so many things to think about, like handling and loading the film properly, which film to use, juggling exposures, and being very selective about what to place on those 12 frames. Being just a test roll, I mainly wanted to see if the camera works. Some of the fractured light makes me wonder if there's a leak, but it could also be some awkwardness in my first time loading or unloading the film-- it has to be manually rolled and I may have fumbled a bit there. My second roll was in color and shows no signs of this issue, so, it's all good. Just a matter of having the process become second nature!
