So I have made it to week 10 & the Holga has not been smashed to bits yet. This week I shot a roll of Ilford HP 5 a film I am liking more & more.
As I am now 20% through I thought I would reflect on how it has gone so far.
To recap I am using a Holga and shooting Medium format film both of which I have never used before.
Those of you that have been following may have the impression that I have no love for the Holga. This is not quite true, I do find it frustrating and compared to my 35mm SLR far too basic and also you will note that I am critical of the images even during the ‘good’ weeks.
This is actually why I am doing this project. I wanted to be constrained by the limitations of the Holga, I wanted to try new films and I wanted the discipline of having to shoot a roll each week. I am hoping this forces me to concentrate on things like composition, light and stories to thus hopefully improve my overall photography.
That in mind, take a seat and take a look at this week’s images
