New Look for your Holga!

3

Somehow I wanted to redesign another camera, after I had redesigned a few La Sardinas. I wanted to give another camera a new look. My choice fell on my Woca 120 GF, it's identical to the Holga 120 GFN.

You’ll need:

  • Paper with pattern or design of your choice
  • double-sided tape
  • scissors
  • transparent adhesive tape
  • black marker pen
  • pencil

I had for ages a nice paper from the craft store at home, with many white cats as a motive. The paper is about twice as thick as normal printer paper. Finally I had the idea to use this paper.

First I took off the back part of the Woca and stuck a piece of clear adhesive tape. With a black marker pen, I marked the boundary and the film window for a template. The adhesive film I took off again and stuck it on a paper. Using scissors, I cut out the template and put it on my design paper. With a pencil I outlined the template, and then cut out the back.

For the front, I have measured the size and cut out my paper and just rounded the corners on one side. I’ve stuck to the double sided tape and this on ​​the camera.

Finished:

Finally, I made ​​another PEARLGIRL shield for the back with a label printer. The edges of the paper I painted with the black marker, so that the edges are no longer noticeable.

Have fun with you new Holga!
Your Pearlgirl

    Do have problems with the paper peeling off? I tried the same label on my cam, but it dropped off after one try :(

    Chemical Manipulations with the Lomo’Instant

    Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    My Lomo’Instant Quick Tips

    I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!

    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.
