Hasselblad Project - The Heat Is On

Had our first real sit-down yesterday. The Hasselblad project a.k.a "One Roll of Film" start to take shape. This is a collaboration between 3 expat Tokyoite photographers (me, Paul and Bahag, check FB) shooting 1 roll of 120mm film i.e. 12 frames in a day using Hasselblads 500 series medium format camera(B/W or Color) with a prime 80mm f/2.8 lens. I could write quite a piece about this topic, amd will, but I leave it for this time. Keep your eyes open for how the projects progresses in a very near future. 

Questions you have to ask yourself; What can you do, within what range and where lays your ability as a film photographer now years after mainly shooting digital? How do you represent being a Hasselblad photographer, using the most prestigous and top of the range classic cameras of all time? What can/will this camera and film medium bring out of you? Do you still have the eye, sense and feeling to produce a good image that hopefully stands out?
