I need to whip this little camera out more often. As most people know, the holga camera is a bit of a novelty as far as film cameras go. A comment I often hear when I'm shooting with it is "that's a real camera? I thought it was a toy!" And its true, it pretty much feels like a toy--cheap, plastic-y, and featureless. The beauty of it though is the simplicity. The plastic lens gives the images an emotive, almost ethereal feel. In a world where we tend to (as photographers) seek perfection, there's something quite wonderful about the freedom of using the holga. The view finder is all but useless, the focus ring is more like a simple lesson in guesstimations, and there's practically only one shutter speed/aperture setting. Here are the images from the roll I shot last week. They have an aesthetic I can't really make with my "nicer" cameras.
