The last image taken with a Holga lens this time around… I love the clean, crisp images of the DSLR but there’s a poetry in these kinds of images I want to explore further. I only wish it wasn’t so expensive to get film developed in Denmark. I would love to work with film cameras too.
It may appear to be against all rules of modern photography but I really like the plastic Holga lens for portraits. Here’s one of my daughter during our trip across the Baltic Sea
My principle of finding blobs of colour works for Holga lens work as well…
I found the surf looked really interesting with the Holga lens – a change from the tack sharp or silky blur waters of the DSLR’s.
This spring my family and I went on a weekend trip to Helsinki. More images will follow but right now I want to show what I got out of bringing the Holga lens with me on our day trip to Tallinn. I find I need some peace and quite to play with the lens but there isn’t a whole lot to do while crossing the Baltic Sea so here you are…
Last Holga snap from the old marina…
This is part of the view you have while you eat your ice cream next to the airport.
Okay, this is not the actual ice cream cone and probably just as well 🙂
Few would guess that you can eat home made ice cream by the marina less than a mile from Copenhagen Airport. How’s that for a stop over? 🙂
I brought my Holga lens with me on a trip to one of the local ice cream places – by the water but even closer to the airport, surrounded by sail boats rather than swimmers.
