SLOW SHUTTER IN DAYLIGHT by zoe191

These pictures were made with a broken Holga 120S (the spring was worn out and slow). If you have a newer Holga, you might be able to get a similar effect by using the bulb setting and shooting outdoors in daylight. Use slides and cross process them to get more interesting images.

This explains why we always love the randomness, newness, chaos and flow that we all do here… because this is the only way we can get closer to absolute truth that we all know: life is analogue, thus we embrace its imperfections.

And in every analogue life, we need more LomoTips to survive!
