Get your Holga now and get lost on the size of things to see!
There are two ways to do this- one is to use a magnifying glass and the other is to use the close up lens off the Diana+ camera accessories. As you can see from the pictures, the close up lens will just slot straight on to the front of your camera but the magnifying glass will need some modification using the trusty masking tape. You will need to find the focusing distance of whichever method you chose to use, although I found both are around 15cm from the subject.
I’ve found plants to be a good thing to use this effect with as parts of the photo will always be in focus. I really like this close up effect as you still get all same Holga traits such as vignetting, but you also get a kind of tunnel vision lens look similar to the lens for LC-A. And if you accidentally use the wrong lens in the enlarger as I did for some of the prints, anything that’s out of focus get a weird spiral blur look, it’s a good mistake! And there’s no need to worry about any parts of your subject being out of focus because they will still look great!
