I recently purchased a DSLR, something I’ve been interested in for quite a while (a Canon Digital Rebel xsi). I also finally remembered to develop two rolls of film from the Holga that had been sitting in the fridge a while. The contrast is amusing.
I’m not entirely sure what went wrong with the focus on the Holga in those images. I usually keep it set at infinity, but you can’t exactly look through the lens to know what you’re getting.
I can’t imagine having only one camera. I could put a weird lens on the SLR, but using film is part of what makes the Holga interesting. I like that some of the result is completely out of my hands—I’ll get what the camera and film decide. But I want sharp, clear, images too. I’ve been learning to work with RAW files. It’s a fun process.
