Garden scenes with Hasselblad 500cm + Ilford Delta 100 Pro

Camera : Hasselblad 500cm
Film : Ilford Delta 100 Pro
Developer : CineStill DF96 Developer + Fix Monobath

Just a regular weekend in Grandads garden taking photos. I tried to under-exposure a bit more for a moodier look, which I personally prefer. It’s strange as I developed ‘a style’ shooting digital which I’m trying to translate to film, part of that style is getting the exposure to my liking.

I choose not to use a light meter as I don’t want to be battery dependant, opting for an all manual experience. This is a lot easier that it first sounds - check out the Helpful Resources page for the link that explained it all to me simply.

I’m really digging the tiny daisy photo, taken at ground level.

Notes

I don’t know if it’s something I am doing wrong but I am really not getting on with the Cinestill Monobath. I’m 4 rolls in and I’m very close to giving up and binning it. I’m going to give it one more chance first though.

Essentially the negatives seem to lack contrast, as if they haven’t developed properly 🤨
