Optic Matters: Choosing Lenses for Portraiture

Ask any professional or intermediate-level photographer about taking the best portraits and you will be told that good portraiture starts with choosing the right lens. So, which is it?

WOCA 120G

The WOCA 120G is a discontinued glass lens Holga. It is similar to the Holga 120S in every way except that it has a very inexpensive glass lens. In theory the glass lens should make the images slightly sharper, at least in the middle. Like the original Holga 120S, the WOCA has only one shutter speed, (approximately 1/100th) and only one f/stop at roughly f/8. It uses 120 film and can be adapted, like any other Holga, to shoot 35mm film. Some Holga enthusists shudder (or is that shutter?) at the idea of a glass lens. Yet, at the same time, it is closer to original Holga than the current 120N model, or any of its variants.
