Toy camera time……..

IMG_2502I have a few older film cameras that sort of give the Lomo effect which I sometimes like the look of but I wanted to get a proper Lomo camera so managed to pick up this Holga 120gn off ebay for just £6.

I wasn’t really expecting much when I opened the parcel but it was still a slight shock to feel how cheap the camera was. Nevertheless I proceeded to load her up with a roll of Ilford Delta 400 only to find out it did not have the film masks so I was only able to shoot 6×6 but that was ok.IMG_250412 extremely quick frames later and into the darkroom I went wondering if anything was going to appear on the film. It felt a little strange shooting every frame at 1/100sec @f11 as that was the only setting when sunny but every frame came out albeit slightly up and down in exposure but nothing that could not be tweaked while scanning the negs.

Here are the 12 shots in all their glory….lol

ps. the double exposure portrait of me was shot by Ben, a happy accident which is one of the reasons to shoot this Lomo style 🙂Holga 120gn-1 Holga 120gn-2 Holga 120gn-3 Holga 120gn-4 Holga 120gn-5 Holga 120gn-6 Holga 120gn-7 Holga 120gn-8 Holga 120gn-9 Holga 120gn-10 Holga 120gn-11 Holga 120gn-12click on an image to view larger……….
