Holga 135BC: Fun For Day and Night

5

Holga 135BC is a great plastic 35mm camera.

The Holga 135BC is an easy and cute toy suitable for a new Lomographer like me.

I think most Lomographers know about this camera’s specification. It’s light, cute, and a stylish 35mm format camera. You all can just search them for more details.

I have been using the Holga 135BC for some rolls. In my opinion, the best time to use this camera is on sunny days and at night for long exposures.

I like to play with my BC in the day when it is bright. Furthermore, I think that it is named and trademarked BC for its vignetting effect, which will come out well on sunny days. This camera is not suitable for cloudy days, although if you do, set it to cloudy mode or use a flash. I think that there is not much difference for the sunny and cloudy settings. I don’t think much about the settings. For me I prefer set it mostly on cloudy or f/8 aperture.

Another good time to shoot is at night by long exposure. It is because the shuttle speeds of this camera fixed with 1/100sec and aperture of f/8 and f/11 which is the best setting for night exposures.

Enjoy shooting with the Holga 135BC!

    A Salute to the Masters: Sports Through A Plastic Lens (A Tribute to David Burnett)

    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.
