One Lens - One Style - Digital Holga

Discussion in 'Black and White' started by Robert Watcher, May 5, 2014.

  1. Heading to the beach today, I wanted to keep my gear simple.

    The trip involves a 3/4 mile walk from our house in 100+ degree weather - a bus out to the Old Market in Sultiava - transfer to another bus that provides a 40 minute ride to Las Penitas.

    I charged up the battery for my older Olympue E-PL1 with wrist strap, changed the lens to the fixed f8 plastic Holga I got from China, set the ISO to 400, manual focus was just south of the "mountain" on the lens, set the camera format to square 6x6, and used the dramatic Black and White Art Filter that the camera provides.

    Anything interesting was captured along the way. These are a selection of my shots from the day. All are straight out of camera - as composed - as exposed:

    With a really good lens and a highly capable body you could spend a lot of money on post processing to create images as good as these...


    I'm really diggin' these shots, thanks for posting!

    I havnt got an e-pl1 or holga lens yet
    thanks to all of you for posting these photos
    I think the holga and the grainy black and white art filter were made for each other
    regards andrew

    Well done! I like very much the BW mixed with the Lo-fi look of the Holga lens plus the "grain". The right look for some great shots.

    I have a diana f+ with the instant back and quite like using it from time to time. I then scan the Instax prints and do a little post work.

    The OPs approach appears to cut down on a few steps. Might look into a Holga lens for my m43 setup. Looks interesting.
