With the exception of the very last photo, these were all taken during Holga Week. The first three photos are the ones I submitted to the contest. I used the same homemade mask I described in a previous post (Shooting Instax Mini Film with a Holga) to load my Holga with Instax. Studio strobes were used for all these photos except one. I used the Holga’s flash for the fifth photo (#1326) and I have no idea what went wrong. Clearly, it failed. The very last photo was taken after Holga Week.
I had a lot of fun shooting these. My wife must have thought my “concept” was crazy, but she’s always a willing particpant in my creations and I love her dearly for that. The submission deadline for Holga Week is tomorrow and I look forward to seeing all the entries on Monday.
Foodie, oenophile, traveler, hockey player, teacher, husband & father. I am many things, but at my core, I am a writer and photographer. Give me a notebook, a camera and a pocketful of film and I’m happy. Going Lomo is where I share my love for film photography, because a photograph not shared, only speaks silence.
