Holga Mishap

I own a 35mm back for my Holga 120 CFN, so one day I loaded it up with some Lomography Slide/X-Pro 200 ISO film and headed to Burnsland Cemetery. Unfortunately, I had a little mishap while I was taking photos. The back cover fell off my Holga and completely exposed the film. I tried my best to get the cover back on fast, but the damage was already done. I learned my lesson that day. Now I tape up my Holga. I tape the cover on and I tape the bulb switch too (I had a mishap with that as well). Sadly I don’t get any small light leaks anymore, but at least nothing catastrophic happens.

Below are the three frames that received ‘an extra helping of light’. I had this roll developed at The Darkroom and how they managed to pull an image off the negative, I will never know. I’ve tried on my own using my Epson Perfection V600 scanner, but I can’t get a usable image. Kudos to The Darkroom!
