I took part in a collective exhibition about our environment, "habitat".

So I assembled in this way the 5 Holga picture I previously posted.

I love this photo above. Gives movement and fun - mystery and splendor. So HOLGA! (Disheartened to hear they will stop manufacturing of the Holga...AUGH! True? Hold on to those puppies..) -j

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

It's Holga Week! A friendly reminder to dust off that old toy of yours that you never play with and go and shoot!

Was just looking at David Burnett's site and noticed he has a gallery of his Holga pics: http://www.davidburnett.com/gallery....meoAlbumID=#/0

Some great stuff there including some he took at the Olympics. Interesting to see what this toy can do in the hands of a great photographer.

We're having way to much of this right now. Dug out the old Holga and went for a walk.



Best,

For a "Plastic Fantastic", the Holga really doesn't do that bad of a job. And in a weird way, it's kind of fun to shoot.



Best,

Nice photos Tim, thanks to keep this thread alive!
I had a plan to shoot with my Holga this month but because of a stupid accident (a bone is broken!) for a few weeks I cannot use my right arm and hand so I cannot shoot the Holga with only my left hand.

robert
PS: maybe with the help of my wife I can load it and put on a tripod...

Monica Forss is a Holga Photographer I follow on Flickr... definitely worth a look at some of her images.
The link gets you to one image and then find the album it's in below on the page.
Lots of European travel scenes... good stuff.

^^^ Nice one David
Your Holga has some extra Holga going on there... look at those corners.
At the moment I'm waiting on a Color Flash version. I hope it has as much character as your Waste Level finder version !

Thank you Andy. Nice shot of yours as well.

I got that Holga from a well-known local photographer having a yard sale. This is the first roll through it and I am quite pleased with the look this Holga has. Also I love having the WLF for different angles. It was a bit of an adjustment getting used to using a WLF. Been a while.

Sharpness?

While all of the Holga pictures have less than sharp corners, the centers seem reasonably sharp. The Holga that I bought some years ago had no areas of sharpness, not the center nor the edges, at infinity or any other setting. Just my copy?

They are all different. I have the glass lens version so maybe it is a bit sharper?
