Holga Carnival

Here are some more pictures of the pop-up carnival I posted about last week. I shot these with my Holga – an all plastic, twenty-five dollar camera. No batteries required, only film. The results are not photo-shopped or altered in any way. They’re far from perfect, but that’s what I like about them.

Thank you for putting up with another non-bike-related post (although I did bike there!). Now back to regularly scheduled programming, including the announcement of the Summer Games Part I winners…

    Very cool Holga shots. Your photography work is really inspiring – makes me want to be better about bringing a camera with me and using it.

    The first and the second shot are gorgeous and represent everything there is to love about “toy” cameras – groovy lighting effects, unexpected compositional gifts and mood and emotion to spare.

    Nice. I don’t know if you are doing this intentionally or not, but the shakiness is probably due to setting the switch to “bulb” on your Holga. I’ve done this many times on accident.

    Awesome photos. I have a Diana and love it too…
    Cheap/crap toy cameras = endless fun!

    These pictures remind me of these old pictures I saw today (including old bike pictures!):

    beautiful!! i’ve been playing with a holga too, but there’s nowhere around me to get the film developed. planning on sending out a bunch of rolls in the next couple of weeks and getting back tons of fun surprises :) you’re lucky to must have a place up there to develop so quickly!

    or…do you do it yourself? i’d love to learn to just do it myself. maybe that’ll be my fall/winter project :)
