No big deal. I did shoot a roll of 35mm earlier this year, and I have 
only been shooting digital for 1 1/2 years.

My decision to buy the Hasselblad was based on several factors:
- it is a beautiful piece of equipment
- those big negatives are great
- the price was ridiculously low
- I want to do my part to support the film business
- ...

I am still working out whether the way I photograph is different between 
film and digital. Most of the images I have made with the Hasselblad 
have been on tripod (the portait of Michiel's father-in-law is the only 
handheld image in the PAW), so in theory it should be more deliberate, 
with more attention paid to the composition etc. Whether that is the 
case is for you guys to judge.
