Holga PAN

I haven’t used my Holga 120 panoramic camera in a long time. On a road trip to Central Oregon last week I decided to pop in a roll of Kodak Portra 400 and try this camera again. So many times I feel like if I am taking a photo then I should use a really good camera, like my Hasselblad or Leica. But then when I use one of my plastic cameras I am surprised how much I like the low fidelity images.

Hope you enjoy them:Oregon_Holga PAN341

This next one is a double exposure where I turned the camera upside down for the second shot:

All these photos were right out of the camera. I did no editing in Photoshop. You only get 4 images on a roll of 120 film, but I think it’s worth the low frame count. I keep hearing people on the Lensless Podcast talk about the Holga Pinhole WPC and it is probably the only Holga I don’t own. I am wondering if I can drop a laser-cut brass pinhole into this panoramic camera? Hmmmm.

Keep using film!
