For any of you out there that know about Holga cameras, you know that they are inexpensive, simple, and ultra unpredictable cameras to shoot most of the time. It’s what makes them so fun. You never really know what your going to get…
With that said, back in 2007 I thought it would be fun to take a little different approach and actually try to setup some more formal environments with my Holga. The experiment consisted of a video light (soft box), light meter, a few rolls of medium format Fuji brand film, a ghetto little wide angle adapter, and a ruler to measure focal distances with to see if it was possible to actually get the focus spot on.
My wife and kids would end up being the victims of this experiment, and needless to say the results were pretty dang cool. Some of my favorite shots from about 3 rolls of film or so are in the gallery below. I mixed in a few randoms as well that made their way in there in between some of the shots.
