Summer: Take One

Over the last few weeks, I have had a lot of luck with the Holga. I have gotten my first two consecutive rolls of 120 film back in which all 12 pictures have been printed, and more or less pretty awesome. In an attempt to summer-ize, some things I have experimented with and/or learned are explained below.

One of my biggest nemeses in Holga photography….

1. BATTERIES: THEY ALMOST ALWAYS SEEM TO FALL OUT

AND DO FUNNY THINGS TO THE FILM BY THE END OF THE ROLL.

3. LIGHT LEAKS ARE UNPREDICTABLE,

BUT WORK IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS.

Clouds over the Gorge. Sunrise? Sunset? I’m not sure.

4. TOO MUCH SUNSHINE WILL BLEACH THE PICTURE OUT

THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO.

(Some nice vignetting, too!)
