Blad to Meet You.

US Forest service fireman Jerry works on a control burn at the Bankhead National Forest in Lawrence Co. Ala.

My first experiences the great camera known to some as a "Blad" or "Hazzie" were mixed. The Hasselblad is a great camera don't get me wrong. This fine piece of camera history was surprisingly hard to use seeing as how simple it was made. Basically a black box with a nice piece of glass. But it had no meter and was very hard to focus and many times i was not getting meter readings that yielded a fast enough shutter speed to keep things sharp. Also there was no way to change ISO as you can with ease when using Digital Cameras. All that said the images that were sharp and composed right were fabulous.
