Hasselblad 500 CM
Zeiss 120mm Makro Planar
21mm Hasselblad extension tube
Over the years I’ve had many, many cameras.
(The truth is that none of them made me a better photographer.)
However, I’ve been cutting down my gear and sticking with only specific kits I like to use on different situations. Let me give you an example.
I had two Hasselblad 500 CM bodies, the 60, 80, 120 and the 150mm lenses, the 21 and 55mm extension tubes and 3 A12 backs. After a year and a half using all that stuff I came to the conclusion that the Hasselblad had become my “portrait” camera and for that specific purpose the Zeiss 120mm Makro Planar in combination with the 21mm extension tube gave me some pretty good results.
Full head shots with shallow depth of field and the sharpness of the amazing 120mm Makro Planar which I truly love. As my “portrait” kit, this is it.
