A camera which loves the spring, and takes stuttering images!
We eagerly awaited the sun and the warmer days. The Holga 135 loves the sun and wants to get out in the beautiful weather and to take photos.
During the winter, I decided that it was about time for my first x-pro. Also, I had read many articles. For example, the Tipster on “stuttering” images.
So, why not now?
With the Holga 135 out and a roll of Kodak slide film in, I was off. I put every subject in the photos twice. The film was full and ready to be cross-processed. After three days, the film was developed, and specifically cross-processed!
AHHHHHHH, I like the results! This will not be my last slide film developed in C-41. But see for yourself, here are some pictures:
An Argentinean writer and photographer living in the Pacific Northwest, Lorraine Healy is a long-time fan of plastic cameras and is the author of "Tricks With A Plastic Wonder," a manual for achieving better results with a Holga camera, available in eBook form at Amazon.com. In this article, Healy explains how she fell hard in love with the Lomography XPro Slide 200 film and why she takes it on her many travels.
In 1972, the Belgian photographer Harry Gruyaert did a very interesting pop art experiment using a broken color television, producing a very interesting series of blurry and color-altered images. This was a very interesting pre-Lomography experiment worthy of a tribute. Take a look after the jump!

With a camera loaded with Lomography X Tungsten 64 ISO, we went to Palm Springs in June to capture the desert heat and vibes. It was a battle to make it in the 40° scorching sun, and somehow our film survived although it was left baking in the car. So take in these dreamy snapshots of a place where time stands still and the sun always shines.
Last Saturday my city, Como, hosted a festival dedicated to the hands called the Mani-Fest. With my lovely Minox GT-S camera and an expired 3200 ISO film roll, I documented this event which took place just below the windows of my room. Take a look after the jump!
Jodo and his friend used to make fun of the Holga 120N's plastic body and doubted its capability to take even simple photographs. After shooting a roll with it, he instantly got impressed by the artistic portraits it produced. Have a glimpse of these photographs that led him to have a change of heart!

The great American photographer David Burnett is famous for his unusual photos of sports competitions. He uses a tilt-shift lens to create miniature fakes, or a simple Holga camera to shoot in black and white. To write this tribute, I used my Holga to take some pictures of amateur sport activities around my city. Take a look after the jump.
