Hasselblad Portrait Photos (Colour Film)(NYC Models)
Hasselblad portrait photos taken with a Hasselblad 501C. Photos were all taken during my Photography Workshop in NYC. Kodak Ektar Portraits, Kodak Portra 400 portraits and Fuji Velvia 50 portraits.
Mr Leica New York Photography Workshop
In December 2015 I took my Hasselblad 501C medium format film camera to NYC. I was invited to New York to teach a 1-2-1 model photography workshop for a week so I jumped at the oppotunity! I took two Hasselblad lenses; a Zeiss Sonnar 150mm f4 CF lens and a Zeiss Distagon 60mm f3.5 CF lens.
Hasselblad Portrait Photos – Colour Film
Here are some of the colour film negative scans, lab developed and scanned. I have split them by film stock and model. Some models got more keepers depending on the light on the day. I used an old Hasselblad A12 6×6 film back and it seems to have a light leak top left of the images. On bright days photos were more affected I think.

Kodak Portra 400 Portraits
Fuji Velvia 50 Portraits
Ektar vs Velvia Portraits
Neither Kodak Ektar 100 nor Fuji Velvia 50 is regarded as a film for portraits. Fuji Velvia portraits especially are uncommon but I like to try everything once. I loved the vibrant colours comparing Ektar vs Velvia but I think I will still to Ektar 100 and Portra film for portraits going forward. (It’s worth noting that I appreciate Fuji Pro400H and Fuji Provia 100F too but I didn’t have them on this trip).
