I ♥ Holga

Since my first roll of film on the Holga, I've been pretty much blown away, and although I haven't been taking too many photos on it lately, I finally got around to scanning in some from last year.
What I've really noticed is how I'd never realised how much film can be just as lovely as digital, I kind of tend to ignore it a lot, because of scanning, expenses, and not being able to view back the photo until process. Now, I can't wait to get my first roll of film developed from my Halina camera, I hope it processes as beautifully as I imagine it will. Film gives a certain dreamy, and romantic look to photos that no one can capture on digital.
Anyway, I'd love to know what you think about Holga cameras, or any film camera in general. Here's two of the Holga photos I've uploaded on myspace.

  1. I like the picture of the beach most - looks like something a fashion company might use to advertise - I don't know much (hardly anything) about photography but I am having a go at it on my blog.

  2. Thank you. I've just had a look at the photos on your blog, and they are really good. Are you using a DSLR?

  3. I like photography but know nothing about it. What is DSLR?

  4. A digital camera, such as a Canon or Nikon, where you can add lenses etc? Not the little point and shoot type cameras.

  5. Canon Powershot A470... it is my first camera.

  6. It looks like it takes a really good photo for macro/close up shots.
