Assorted Holga, Special Moments, and Other Than Standard Camera Shots
"And all I see are little dots Some are smeared, some are spots..." -- Talking Heads
And what for? After all, I could just be shooting away with toy cameras, where even the crappiest shot is made even crappier by lens distortions and light leaks.
A toy camera (or two) is a standard item in my car these days. The Holga is ever present, and for a change of pace I grab a $1 Special Moments Focus Free camera loaded with 35mm film.
So today I cobbled together an update consisting of images taken with toy, krappy, and other than standard cameras, featured here...
Do spots of light qualify as a “subject?” Does it matter if the spots in Night Driving are streetlights, while the dots in Little Dots are just sunlight on window curtains?
I don’t think so… The toy camera kitsch of course is a plus, but I just like the dots. Maybe connecting them is the challenge.
For those interesting in film and developing - Holga shots were taken on Classic Pan 400, developed in HC110 Dilution H. The 35mm Special Moments shots were taken on Fuji Neopan 400, developed in Rodinal 1:25. All exposures were pushed 1 stop.
I came across your lovely images whilst researching Holga cameras online with a view to purchasing one myself. I just wanted to tell you that I think thay are beautiful, and an inspiration to us would be Holga users.
