Good things always come in twos. In this case, it's my Holga 135 TLR camera and a roll of Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100.
A match like no other. That’s what I have found out when I used my Holga 135 BC TLR with a Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100 film.
The photo set shown in this article is also the first trial roll I’ve had with the Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100. I’ve always wanted to try it out ever since I have seen sample photos from fellow lomographers. So when I racked up enough piggy points, I bought a bunch of them last year.
What makes this camera-film pairing great for me is that the Holga 135 delivers unique results with each shot. Plus, the vignette that it produces makes the photo much more interesting. The Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100 film on the other hand is great with making the colors pop out and gives it a distinct look.
Even in low light situations, I am still able to shoot with it using the flash. And the flash that comes with the camera comes with different color filters which makes it all the more exciting to shoot with.
Also, the camera relatively has simple controls (cloudy, sunny or bulb setting) and easy focusing too. Oh, you can also shoot multiple exposures – so more options for creativity!
Thanks for reading!
