The Holga 135 BC is a compact 35mm camera that has all of its big brothers best characteristics built in. IT is simple and easy to use and that you will be glad to have it around.
What makes the Holga 135 BC that bit different is that it has a small mask inside the camera that darkens the corners of your photos in order to give you that really cool vignetted look.
It has the same lens mount and focusing as a Holga 120 which is really easy to use. Two shutter settings, N and B (for longer exposures). What’s also cool about this camera is that it can be used with a tripod and it is threaded so that you can use a cable release if you want to use the B setting but without any blur. It also has a hot shoe so that you can attach a flash unit to take photos indoors or at night time.
The Holga 135 BC is a really cool camera to have, that gives a really cool look to you photos, and because it is compact and easy to use, you will end up taking it everywhere. One side note that i thought that i would mention, is that make sure that when you get your photos developed you ask them not to crop your photos because some places will crop your photos down which means that they end up cropping out the darkened corners of your photographs which is a pain in the behind!!

I like to think, that every location I have been writing about in the past years was a discovery of some sort. This story will be about the discovery somebody else made. Wendy Sloboda is maybe the coolest dino hunter of our time. She has tattoos, dreads and she found a new species of dinosaur, that now carries her name: the Wendiceratops Pinhornensis.

We all have our ways of making our cameras our own, making them do what we want, and helping us to remember how to use them. This is my take on making my Sprocket Rocket mine, with marks and hints on making it easier to use.
Megan's Doherty work is all about capturing the best moments of being young and free. She switched to analogue photography soon after she realised it brings a special aesthetic to her photos. Megan continues to amaze us with her work and the ability to offer something fresh and different.
Mitchell Wojcik is based in Brooklyn, New York. He likes "Ghostbusters, and to make whatever comes to mind and document my life as I go." He used to put a lot of thought into things, but now prefers to have fun and not think about it at all. Hmm, sounds like a perfect match for the Lomo'Instant Automat Glass!
It can be said that photography is more than just a click on the camera, it makes the moments, people and emotions live forever. This was confirmed to us by an exceptional Dutch photographer Ferry Verheij, whose photographs represent stories of all those people and places he had a chance to know.
