Another View with the Tunnelvision Lens

Usually what you get from the Tunnelvision Lens is a blur effect on the edge, like stretched and focus on the middle, or you could do a macro shot. Yes that's the usual view from this lens, but there is another view. It is shadowy, mystic, surreal, when I see these pictures. It's like multiple exposure, but when you pay attention it's not like two frames merging into one frame. Yes this is another view that you could get with tunnelview lens from lomography.

The Holga Mod: Modifying the Aperture Settings

If you are a hardcore Holga fan or have already taken the time to look up some sites featuring Holga mods and hacks (or to take apart your camera for that matter), you will know that the Holga, despite sporting a switch for two different aperture settings for sunny and cloudy conditions, only features one aperture. This is due to the fact that switching from cloudy to sunny causes an arm to slide in front of the lens opening, the area of the hole on that arm (which is supposed to allow less light in) is larger than that of the aperture; i.e. the amount of light remains the same.

Holga Unmasked!

See what you can do with your Holga when you DON'T use the 12 or 16 mask. It's naked, leaky, and overlapping fun.

These pictures all came from The Art of Waiting roll from September 2010, shot on Fuji Velvia.
