I haven’t used my Holga 120 in awhile. I usually save it for the beach and rainy days because its plastic body is perfect for those conditions. I long ago gave up taking my digital camera out in those conditions. The sand combined with the wind at the beach can wreck havoc with electronics. My pinhole and Holga cameras are the best for these wet and windy conditions.
Last week before attending a photography brown bag lunch talk at the Portland Art Museum(third Wednesday every month) I walked around Portland making double exposures. I tried doing opposites in each frame…..Like food restaurants with people on the street or cars parked up and the sign “Run”. Some were successful and some were not, but that’s part of the fun. Never quite sure what I’ll get until the negatives are developed. Isn’t that part of why we like using film?
