finally, i’m going to purchase a holga this afternoon:

i cant wait to start experimenting…

a great feature of the holga is the multiple exposure option, so you can create overlapping images, to produce results like these below:

“The Holga has a separate shutter and advance – meaning that you can shoot as many times as you like on the same frame without advancing. This feature can either be intentional or accidentally ruin a single exposure photo. It’s easy to forget to advance the film, so you can decide to always wind the film after a shot or try to not care and see what happens. In the right hands and with a bit of luck, multiple exposures can create complex and stunning images and also turn accidental double exposures into photographic miracles.”

It also has the option of coloured flashes:

“The flash on the Holga 120 CFN (included in the Starter Kit, Deluxe, & Fisheye packages) includes built-in color gels. This way you can tint your shots with color or create weird portraits of people at night. Use it as a fill light with color during the day where nearby subjects will be colored in while maintaining the natural light in the background or enhance your double exposures with one frame of color. The possibilities and combinations are endless.”

will post my first film as soon as its developed !

  1. Good luck. I look forward to seeing some pics.

  2. I think you’re going to just love Holga photography. I’ve been playing about with them for a few years, and can’t get enough of them. In a world of clean and clinical digital photography, the Holga is the absolute antithesis.

    They’re wonderful little plastic boxes of joy.

  3. thanks – actually ended up with a diana+ … but i’ve been snapping away at anything and everything, and plan to leave two films in to be developed tomorrow… pictures to come soon !
