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!
My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.
As a scientist, Pierrick is often curious about the mechanism behind how things work. His first brush with analog photography is no exception. Eager to know more about the inner workings of a film camera, he started from scratch and tested his DIY skill with the Konstuktor camera.

On July 4, 1776, the redrafted version of Thomas Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence made it to Congress. Some 90 years later it was made into an official holiday. Since then, Americans have celebrated Fourth of July in full regalia. Some parade in flag-themed costumes or party in their best dresses, while others bond with friends over beer in the park.
There are things that artist Valeriie Liin can't leave the house without: her earphones, two notebooks, keys to her home in Taiwan, and a little color palette for painting. It's not always that she can paint, though, so for those times she turns to her cameras.

Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.
