When I bought my Holga 135bc, I was expecting some crazy results. After i got my first roll developed, i was happy with the quality but was disapointed to see that the whole roll had not one light leak! Here is one quick modification you can add to your Holga 135, or Holga 135bc!
What you need:
black electrical tape
a Holga 135bc or Holga 135
a roll of film
1) Start by opening the back of your Holga and taping it back down. Make sure to not tape it so tight that it closes. Once you have it taped, close the back (the tape might scrunch up a little) then open it again. If when you open it, the back opens but there are no visible cracks then you are good!
2) Close the back of the camera and take a picture! After you took the picture pop the back open for a few seconds. If you have done this right, then the top of the back should just be a crack open. Close the back and continue to shoot! You can use this techinque on all of your pictures, or only a select few!

Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.

In prime areas of New York and San Francisco, the phrase ‘rush hour’ is always on the menu. Drive up to Reno, and the same expression fizzles. Many roads are framed by mountains and shrubbery, a picture of calm in the city. But the night makes up for the day’s stilly mood. Casinos flaunt LED signs and marquees, a treat for urban photographers.

Jungle, home, haven. The same words may apply to both city and nature. Though different they are linked. The city takes after the colors of flowers and animals; people mold their neighborhoods after the shapes of nature. Other similarities are accidental: the fun bit.
