Failure sometimes is an option
Sometimes experiments go horribly wrong.
The whole idea of this experiment was to try and use a medium format camera loaded with 35mm film to get a panoramic photo. Seemed pretty straight forward, so I thought.
I had several cameras to choose from and decided to try my Hasselblad 500 C/M.
I loaded the camera with 35mm film that I taped to some old backing paper so I could load the film onto a 120 film core and of course I had to do this in complete darkness. Due to the orientation of the film (how the film travels in the camera), I have to turn the this camera on its side to take the photos if I want a wide panoramic and of course the first time I took a photo I forgot to turn the camera.
Half way through shooting, I almost cut through the film with the dark slide. Also, the film apparently either wasn't completely straight on the backing paper or didn't feed through the film back properly resulting negatives looking slanted. I guess the film wasn't completely flat either as part of the film was not in focus. When I scanned this negative, it was laying flat on the scanner with a sheet of glass sitting on top of the negative strip to hold it flat on the scanner glass - as evident of the newton rings.
Then to add insult to injury - the developing of the film was a failure as you can see on the bottom of the photo. I had to tear the film in half just to get the entire film onto developing reels (due to the dark slide almost cutting the film in half) as well.
Apparently, using a Hasselblad 500 C/M is not the best choice for a medium format camera to be loaded with 35mm film in order to get a panoramic photo.
This is the first time I've had an entire roll of film not be properly developed. This is not the first time I've tried 'stand' developing film. As I already mentioned, sometimes experiments go horribly wrong.
But that's how we learn. Next time I use a different camera for one.
Stand developed in Rodinal 1+100 for 45 minutes at 20C.
