Holga, My Holga

For a long time now, I've wanted a Holga camera.

If you're not familiar with Holga, I strongly recommend checking it out. Holgas are plastic cameras with fixed focus. No bells and whistles unless you physically modify the camera. But oh the magic that comes from Holga. Behold:






Holga is a medium format, 120 film camera. Yep, film. One shot, can't check it kind of pics. You have to use your imagination to think about how it might turn out. Holgas are full of light leaks and other nuances that create these dreamy, vibrant images. Not necessarily crisp, but they are vibrant.

I took one roll this past week. Will be taking some more at the Mother's Day gathering. As this comes together, I'll scan and upload them for all to see.

Holgas are fun. Even if you're just a true amateur like moi it makes you better since you really have to think about the snap.

Great post, Phel.
