See what you can do with your Holga when you DON'T use the 12 or 16 mask. It's naked, leaky, and overlapping fun. I have been using my Holga without either the 12 or 16 frame mask and have been getting some really nice results. I love the exaggerated vignetting and light leaks that occurred on every picture. These pictures all came from The Art of Waiting roll from September 2010, shot on Fuji Velvia.
I also got some really nice overlapping pictures. I don’t remember if these were intentional or not. Here’s one example.
The two shots just bleed right into each other. Here are the shots separately. I don’t think they are nearly as interesting.
Here are a few more overlapped shots shown together and then single.
Unlike the first example, I think these two pictures stand well on their own.
This was on the end of the roll. The shot on the left is pretty underexposed so it doesn’t stand well on it’s own.
Here is my favorite overlap on the roll…
…and the two pictures separately, which I think are well by themselves.
I love happy little accidents. I’m going to have it printed and see what it looks like ‘for real’. You should give it a try! Go ahead, unmask your Holga and see what you can capture.
