Hasselblad 500CM + Fuji pro 400H

Gear:
Hasselblad 500CM
Zeiss 120mm Makro Planar
21mm extension tube

Recipe:
Fuji pro 400H
Shot at 800 developed at 400.

I’m not an experienced color film user in any way.
These are just experiments for future record.

I had no light, the meter was reading f3.5 at 1/125 and I also wanted to use the 21mm extension tube so I made the decision of using the 400H at 800 but developing it at 400. I know the colors would be more saturated. I’ve done this same thing with Kodak New Portra 400 and I liked the results very much.

All I can say is that pushing C-41 film one stop but still developing it at box speed is a simple process I feel comfortable with. Color film is not as forgiving as black and white but still I find pushed color negatives a good starting point for some post-production work.

Using the 21mm extension tube, no exposure compensation, I've added yellow in Photoshop.

I've added yellow overall and a bit of cyan on the clovers.

    The developing looks fine. I’m wondering why you used a macro set up for this shoot.

    • I wanted the shortest DOF possible. There was too much skin showing and the Makro Planar does not forgive less than perfect skin. By making the DOF as shallow as possible I thought I could get a softer look.
