Hasselblad 500CM + Zeiss 60mm lens + 21mm extension tube

Gear:
Hasselblad 500CM
Zeiss 60mm lens
21mm extension tube

Recipe:
Kodak Trix 400
D76
1+1

10 min
20C
Agitation: first 10 seconds of each minute.

Using the 21mm extension tube with the 60mm lens enhances the distortion at a much closer distance. I like that distortion. It really makes the picture go deeper into the detail.

On the other hand the pictures are funny. They look like something out of a bad photo booth.

The classic Zeiss CT 60mm lens is a heavy lens! This was the second roll of film I’ve taken with it and I was used to the 80mm and the 150mm and they are both lighter but it’s a brilliant sharp lens in every way.

Having the 80mm and 60mm seems a bit silly being so close to each other but they are two very different performers.

Anyway this it was fun to do and I really love using the Hasselblad no matter what lens.

Please forgive my poor English.
