More Holga

March 10, 2008

I am still struggling with the Holga.  I think it’s actually teaching me to be a little more zen than I am naturally.  You only have 12 pictures and you can’t see what they look like immediately after you take them like you can with digital.  This is teaching me to be patient, pick the right shots, take only a couple at a time.  Breathe in, breathe out.  I will eventually get it and hopefully have some fun pictures to add to my collection.  Right now though I am still learning.  Call me Grasshopper.

I like the vignetting:

My friend Julie turned me on to these plastic cameras called Holga’s.  They have two F-stops, a plastic lens and take medium format film.  Sounds like loads and loads of fun.  I took my first coupe of rolls completely expecting them to be horrible since there was some to get used to with the camera.  I was right – my test pictures are not so good but I learned from them so that’s a plus.  You should check out Julie’s Holga pics – they’re really good.  Her first time out she hit it out of the park.  Check out her blog – go ahead and click it, you know you want to.  She’s Mamaphunk and the link is to the left.  I’ve included a few of mine – the only ones that turned out half way decent:
