How have I forsaken thee?










Seriously, I used to shoot with this camera ALL THE TIME. And I mean, ALL THE TIME. To me, this camera equals summer and everything that comes with it. Well, summer came really late this year weather wise and I got tied up shooting other things and totally neglected my Holga. So, the other day, the kids were playing outside in the HEAT, like that have all summer and I decided to bust out my Holga and give it a whirl. It did not disappoint, it actually over performed. These images are straight out of camera, cross-processed, and I added a Nikon SB80 for some fill since I was shooting back lit.

I've been shooting a TON of Instax lately as I just love the format and the actual instant print I get. However, after these results, its time to bring the Holga back in full force and use it during its peak season, SUMMER.

Hope everyone is having a good one...summer that is :).

Jonathan, your holga's are always a delight.

(I'm headed to La Jolla in a couple of days, and the holga is coming with me. These have made me even more excited to use it!)
