Has an old school feel to it. Nice.
Thanks for the comment.
The photo was shot with a Lumix GF-1 and a 25mm Holga lens.
I really like the old skool feel as well. The grain works in nicely in this regard.
Did you use a holga lens or is this all done with pp?
Holga, Holga, Holga, Holga, Holga, Holga, Holga, Holga, Holga, Holga, Holga, Holga, Holga, Holga, Holga, Holga!
To each his own, but I really don't get the whole Holga thing. I spent a couple of thousand dollars on a camera with a really excellent sensor, and sharp, contrasty lenses. I don't want to take pictures that look like the ones I took with my $10 box camera in 1964.
Meyer the reason It looks great to me is because we don't see this anymore. Not that i ever did anyway (I'm too young;-) But it's different
Like Gary said ......It was shot with an $18.00 plastic Holga lens.
After that, very little PP work was done on it- just basic cropping, dodging, and burning.
In the end, money is irrelevant as to how a photographer shoots and as to what they shoot.
I've shot just about every kind of camera you can think of over many years. A lot of them were very expensive. So what?
At the end of the day, it is the image that matters and the emotion that it elicits from the viewer.
I find that I do not shoot with my Holga lens nor my pinhole cap lens very much. It is a look that can become very cliche' very quickly. But for certain subjects at certain times, well, it just seems to fit the bill.
I want to thank everyone for their comments.
The message is not the medium.
Pinhole, Holga, LensBaby, Fisheye, are one trick ponies, to be used sparingly otherwise, it is more of the same.
