[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
my first portrait photo with the Hasselblad :)
this is also the first time i try a flash with this camera

the hasselblad is a very nice portrait camera and the square format is perfect
my flash is a little under power so i had to shoot a F5.6, optimal for this camera is around F8 to F11 in order to get sharpness on the face :)

i just bought a used Metz hammer head flash this unit should hav enough power to bring out the best of the Hasselblad :)

Hi Koh,

I am impressed with camera collection you have . . it's a first class list . .
How did you convert to digital for this picture?
Are you using only one flash?
Lovely portrait . .


The results are withouth any doubt VERY good.
Still I think .. you as a man who knows his stuff,
could not also create the same with a Nikon Canon SLR ..??
Looking to some prices of Hasselblad ..here :
Oh boy .. lol.
Compliments and no.. it's NOT looking like a flash shot,
Following your results with greatest intrest

This is avery nice portrait. The light looks perfect as do the details in the picture. Excellent focus on her eyes. Great work.

Hello Koh. Awesome score in square format. Nicely kept depth in good sharpness and detail. Regards. Jusni
