A day with the Holga
We’ve covered all these shots before but since I was going back over already travelled ground with the faithful dog today I stuck on the digital Holga lens and tried to get a new take. For those who’ve never heard of Holga, it’s more traditionally a film based thing with a very low quality camera with a plastic lens. What you get it imperfect images, soft focus, vignettes etc. The film version suffer with light leaks and can have some really strange effects. You don’t get to replicate that exactly with the digital version lens but you do get something very different. This is really what phone apps like Instagram and Hipstamatic are trying to reproduce. Welcome to lomography!
Regular readers of the blog will recognise the route, along the Union Canal with a shot of the Meadows for good measure.
