Don't try taping your whole camera. It's not meant to be that way!

We know there is a tip that shows us how to tape our Holga cameras to avoid light leaks using black tapes. But why should we? Our lovely Holga’s aren’t meant to be taped up! Toss the tapes aside and just load your films and shoot!

Light leaks are cool! Light leaks effects are easy to achieve on a bright sunny weather. That is it, a quick ‘tip’. What are you waiting for, go out and start clicking!

    ^Try taking out the frame, that usually does the trick :)
    Also if you have built in flash, wrap tape around your batteries so the friction holds them in place and the don't get in the way of your photos

    Also if you drop your holga frequently (like me:) seems to increase leaking. Over time I'm sure you won't be lacking of leaks. Can't wait? Leave it on the front seat of your car during lunch.
