Holga - Happy Accidents

I took the trusty Holga (see previous here) out for a spin a few months back, as with these toy-like cameras unpredictability is common or at least it is with me. But I love a happy accident, don’t you? Anyways, Holga came with me to Bucharest and Scotland.

With light leaks, wrong frames and double exposures a go-go I think there is something quite interesting about them. Some disagree (the boy), I’m open to discussion.

Analgoue Love: Hong Kong

We've been located in London for just over a year now and we ain't going to lie, we be missing Hong Kong. The crazy weather, the friends, the streets. We came across some old shots taken from our time living in the 852 with our analogue gear the other day and we'd thought we'd share.

All photos by me on Pentax K1000, Diana, Holga and an old Nikon using mostly Lomo film.

The sturdier brother to Diana is the subject of this instalment of Analogue Love. Holga, boxy and slightly more manly in appearance than the Diana is almost the same in function, with the exception of the built in flash - not all models come with flash. I'm not sure why I needed to have one of these bad boys ( I had an overwhelming to desire to own one) but I managed to score this one at a flea market here in HK. It was so much cheaper than the Lomo ones online and I even did some light bartering. Win, win. We haven't had quite so many adventures together but when I have taken it out with me recently I have been using Fujichrome Velvia 100F slide film (this will need to be cross processed when developed). This film is best in bright sunny environments which South East Asia provides nicely (and thankfully) I was lucky enough to travel to various spots to capture romantic toy camera moments. As ever light leaks and double exposures are happy accidents. As you will see from my initial snaps I had some trouble with the film advance, at first I was kinda annoyed at myself but really it adds another layer (literally) to what could possible be a boring photo.

It really is a super easy to use and handle camera with results that always make me smile. I'm not sure I prefer to the Diana but it is a close call.

If you had to chose which wins Diana or Holga?

Happy Snapping!
