Holga Revisited

Central Park.

Such Great Heights. 12220003 86th Floor (holga).

After a terrible first attempt using my Holga, I think that I’ve finally figured it out, it’s amazing what using the correct mask will do! I really like this camera, it takes pretty impressive lo-fi photos for a piece of multicolored plastic.

I was considering leaving it behind on vacation because of the limited space in my Crumpler bag, but I’m very happy that I didn’t. If only I would have thought to bring it along when we were at the shore, I probably would have used an entire roll (12 photos or 16 if you’re using a different mask) while there. All these photos were taken on vacation with the exception of the photo in the middle. There are a couple of holga photos that I uploaded to flickr that are not on the website if you’re interested. Click here.

Thanks again to my wonderful e-friend, Kris who sent me a roll of Fujifilm Superia film for my birthday. All of the photos I took on vacation was used with that film, and it’s probably in my head, but I do like it a lot better than the Kodak I had been using. Must pick up more film and keep practicing! :)
