( Winner of yesterdays NEWSLETTER giveaway, the Edward Weston Documentary with 5×7 original print portrait is: Catherine G. of Burlingame,CA.-Congratulations!)
[photopress:holgacamera.jpg,full,centered] This is a classic of cool. The Holga. with a rich history and a definitive place in the world of photography, this scrappy (did I say that??) little plastic camera is todays freebie.
Known for it’s faults, it has captured the hearts of shooters everywhere.
The instructions even point out the places to put black electrical tape to secure the light leaks.
A keystone of the lomographic society, ” Don’t think, Just shoot “, this does come in a variety of flavors: plain, with flash (the freebie) and with color flash. Yum.
You can max it out with a variety of lens attachments, or trick flashes, but take it for a spin first.
Very anti-digital, it shoots 120 film and requires 2 AA batts. I’ve had the film processed and the images put on a CD though.
Sorry, love the digital workflow. But the image….ahhh the image…that can be it’s own thing.
Wait…what was that?
