santa clara

For the Hasselblad 500C/M's first real outing with the 220-back, I walked the streets of Santa Clara area armed with the Distagon 40mm lens and rolls of expired Kodak Ektachrome E100VS slide film. The film has held up well, and the colors came through nice and vibrant. Here are the 10 best frames.

about Branden Frederick

I am a photographer: I have fun taking photos, and I always have.

I've had a camera in my hand my whole life, a 110 camera as a kid, and the high school's 35mm SLR later. In 2008 I spent six months doing nothing but taking photos and loved it. From that point on I've had my camera surgically attached to my hand (I lie). I went digital in the year 2000, and I came back to film in 2013. My parents tell me my photos are "nice".
