Post your Holga pictures here...

With the recent news about the end of Holga production it could be an idea to celebrate this "toy" posting here photos taken with that camera.

Please do not take it too serious, the definition itself of "toy camera" says it all!



Winter, xp2s, double exposure

I haven't used a Holga since the 90s, but it is sad to see that they won't be made anymore. Fortunately, there were a lot of them made in recent years.

Sad to hear the news about Holga going away. Can't believe it after all these years! Really don't understand the plan to cease production. As far as I know, Holgas are still very popular and a great teaching tool.

Here's a couple I could lay my digital finger on quickly.

I posted this in the other thread. Just developed a roll I shot with my 120N yesterday. I'll post some when I scan them in.

Holga loves Colour

I have a ton of Holga images. Color seems to always give the best results.
Here are a few from a shoot I did for the Duo "Rue" for there 2010 Album and liner notes.
It was my most fun sfw "shoot" with the holga to date.
Sorry for the 1024's 640's are just too small













From a halloween party the night of the record release.

Had a little time and dug up a few more:

Honestly, going back through, looking for more image, I think I've done some of my best work with the Holga cameras. Completely low-tech, light-leaky, plastic imperfections aside, there's just something dreamy about the images Holgas produce. Hoping somebody will take over and start making bodies again. If not, I have my eye on a Diana F kit, once I scrape together the $$$. But I still have several Holgas. Never giving up on them!

Just got my first Holga and put my first roll of HP5+ through it. Why did I wait so long to get one?

Long time with no photo in this thread, I'll go out next (probably wet) sunday and try something...

For the moment just a photo from my archive...
