Picture of My Day – 13 – Meet Holga

Holga CameraMeet Holga, my new cheap yet very trendy plastic camera! I’m planning on taking Holga with me while exploring Sanford so stay tuned for some (hopefully!) special pictures. Now I just have to wait for the film to arrive (can’t buy it at CVS or Walgreens) so I can get started shooting. I have to say I am super excited to try the camera and for once not rely on technology! It will be challenge 🙂

Below is a definition of what a Holga camera is and does…

A Holga Camera is a study in plastic imperfection, and to use it as an exercise in breaking free from dependence on technology, precision, and uber-sharpness. The slight softness of the images, uncontrollable vignetting and peculiar light leaks create a partnership between you and your Holga. These “flaws”, accompanied by your creative choices, result in a quasi-serendipitous form of art. A Holga stretches our visual perception. Using a Holga adds another facet to the way we see the world. We notice more things, and thus we examine and evaluate their status. A Holga is an educator teaching us a new visual vocabulary with which to describe our world. A Holga is a rule breaker. To use a Holga is to utterly change the terms of reference most people use to interpret photography.

…and here is what I did about 3 years ago.
