Magic Kingdom On Film

Merry Christmas! I took my Hasselblad to Magic Kingdom about a month ago to get some ideas out of my system. The sun was a little shy that evening so I had to work quickly. I tried different angles of Cinderella's Castle as an experiment and ending up liking more shots than I thought. I love how in one hour the scenery and colors changed so much.

My focus this time was seeing how the colors would render. I've found that I'm so used to my editing style with digital photos that initially I felt unimpressed by the scans, again! But after examining them and putting my favorites into this post, the magic of film reawakened inside of me. There is a value in the consistency of shooting one film stock. Even though each shot is different, they work together in an beautiful way.

All images were taken with the Hasselblad 503CW and the Carl Zeiss Planar T* 2.8/80 on Kodak Portra 400. They were scanned and processed by Richard Photo Lab in California
