Week 29: Gotta have Coffee

This week I shot a roll of Fuji Pro400h in the Holga.  It was a particularly bright day so 400iso was a bit to strong.  It was already loaded from a few days before so I didn’t really have a choice. I decided to try a theme this week and the theme was Coffee.  I…

Week 28: Composition, Composition, Composition

As mentioned in my last post I shot 3 rolls in the Holga for Holga week.  This post is in relation to the second roll which was Kodak Ektar 100.  A film I like and have also seen great results when others have used it. For Holga week I was keen to shoot as many…

Week 27 : Slide Film

I have been away so there has been no update for a couple of weeks however I shot three rolls for Holga week in July and these will be shared starting today with a roll Fuji Provia 100f and the other two in the next two updates I am going to let the images do…

Week 25: Time out

I’ve had a few online conversations recently about the Holga.  Those of you that follow these updates (Thank you!) know for me the Holga is a love/hate relationship. It seems that what some people find frustrating with the Holga, me included, is the lack of any discernible control.  To explain, you can’t change shutter speed,…

Week 20:Vertigo

ok a little change this week, still experimenting of sorts but not quite to the same extent. This week  I went to The View from the Shard, a tourist attraction in London’s tallest building on the 69th & above floors.  I thought it would be interesting to see how the Holga copes with the view.…

Week 19: Red or Dead

This week as part of my experimenting with film and the Holga I shot my first ever roll of Redscale.  Now with my limited knowledge and a quick google check, this is where the film is reversed so you shoot through the back of the film and thus the red layer is exposed first.  I…

Week 20 continued: Sprocket Rocket

In addition to the roll that I shot through the Lomokino, week 20 also saw me burn up another roll of TMax through another Lomography creation, the Sprocket Rocket. The camera shoots a 106º field of view across the width of 2 standard 24x36mm frames, and it also exposes the sprocket holes. Like the Lomokino,…

Week 18:Colour Shift

You may recall that I am going to use the next few weeks (and then some) experimenting with all types of films, filters and processing with the Holga as part of my 52 rolls.  This hopefully will help me learn and better understand  film so I can bring concepts across for my main format of…

Week 17: Borough Market

I have done a little reflecting on on my project and the way forward.  I need to shake myself up to ensure I keep this interesting for us all.  So over the next few weeks I’m going to be experimenting more & more with the Holga & various film types and film processing.  So the…
