Photo of the Week

This week’s photo photo brought to you by my Holga.  To tell you the truth, I’m not really a Holga kind of guy, but this camera was given to me once by my oldest friend. He had bought it to try some “lomo” photography and hadn’t really jumped on the band wagon.  When he saw my enthusiasm in photography, he decided I might give it a better home.  While I’ve seen some wonderful stuff from Holga’s, I haven’t always been so thrilled with my results.  It seems to be quite a good one, with no light leaks (although some would call this a feature…), and mainly just a soft lens with vignette in the corners.

 

This shot was from one of the many little markets that spring up on Parisian streets, love the colours and the effect the lens had on the resulting picture.

Photo of the Week

I had a falling out with my Holga recently.  All my shots were overexposed and blurry, couldn’t figure it out till I noticed the B/N switch had moved itself to Bulb!  Only one roll of film was wasted, and now we’re good friends again.  This week’s photo is with said Holga using Kodak 400VC at the local market.  Love the vibrant colours and how the vignetting focuses you on the subject.
