Scappoose, St. Helens, Rainier, and Longview
I went on a small roadtrip through the small towns of Scappoose, St. Helens, Rainier in Oregon, and Longview, Washington to test out a camera. It was a chilly day in early spring and these tourist towns are usually still a ghost town during this time of the year. The lighting and cloud coverage were also perfect - overcast with some scattered low-hanging clouds. This provided diffused light on subjects while still keeping some details in the sky.
Shot on Hasselblad 500C/M and 60mm f/3.5 CF, scanned on an Epson V700 with minimal cropping and edits. The following photos are on Kodak Portra 400.
I also shot a roll of expired Ilford XP2, a new emulsion for me. While I liked the contrast, tonality, and grain structure, this roll was ruined by poor storage, as evident by the backing paper mottling on the negatives.
Overall, the 60mm CF is incredibly sharp and can resolve a lot of details, though it exhibited some magenta color fringing on tree lines and power lines in the photos above. The fringing is somewhat awful compared to modern digital lenses, and is noticeable even when looking at the pictures zoomed-out, but is easily removable in Adobe Camera Raw.
