If you think you’ve seen and tried all the Holga Modifications possible, look again…

HOLGAFRAMEMODS by julirai

Here are a few chosen pics from my holgamodstuff using customised holga masks. Here’s how: just have yourself some cardboard or paper, make shapes out of it, put it in you holga frame, and shoot! Afterwards, use your spooled 120 film again and just repeat the process. Just make sure you place your holga mask in a slightly different position this time.

There’s always more to do and see than you thought with our beloved Holga. So please feed it with some films and abuse it with your crazy ideas! And when done, upload your lo-fi plastic Holgavisions here.

    ok, i am a little late, but: i think it works with all analogue cameras, but it's easiest with the holga because of the 120 format. i think it could be quite difficult with 35 mm, but, try it!

    Tipster: DIY X-Pro Redscale

    Browsing through the Lomography website, you can find a lot of redscale shots, which are all done on color negative films. I asked myself if it’s possible to redscale a slide or chrome film and then cross process it. (And yes, it is.) In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.

    On Raw Beauty: An Interview with Portraitist Don Michael Acelar De Leon

    He will respectfully ask for a photo session. He does not outline why, and if you are shy, you will wonder what he has seen in you. He greets reluctance with understanding and a resounding yes with an equal amount of enthusiasm. When the day comes, he will treat you like a collaborator. And whenever he talks about the outcome—comely photos of what looks like your most confident self—he will always call you a muse.
