Holga Responce

I am glad I am reviewing the Holga late. partly because although I really enjoyed Paul Bower’s lecture and learning about the Holga, it couldn’t have prepared me for the labor of love that this camera really is. Frustrating, rarely consistent, flimsy and light hungry, I started the Holga project ready to hate this camera. After burning two rolls because I can’t tell ‘Normal’ from ‘Bulb’ shutter sounds, I dialed it in and got some good shots. Some great shots actually, ones that screamed playfulness and magic. I was entranced, this shotty little camera had produces some amazing work.

If I had reviewed the Holga earlier, this would be an entirely different post. The Holga grew on me, and its one I am not going to be able to put down when this quarter is over.
