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!!
The 7th Annual Holga & Friends Out of the Box (on creativity that is) International Photography Competition is now under way with guest juror O. Rufus Lovett. It is open to amateur and professional photographers around the globe that use a toy camera or an element of it.
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.
Soon we will be saying goodbye to 2016. We had some pretty awesome moments and didn't hesitate to share them with the world. All the photos you've taken this year will be the best reminder of the journey that lasted 365 days.
We love London in the summer and what better way to spend it than joining one of our workshops. This month we will be running a Diana F+ X-pro workshop, our very first Simple Use Film Camera walk, and a new exhibition from photographer Adam Popli. Book your spot today!
It seems that everything that goes forward also goes digital. Is there any merit left as to why we continue to shoot film? These people share their reasons why the analogue grind is and will always be alive.
We all like to think of what the world will look like when it meets its inevitable end. However, it is human nature to hope that when the time comes, there'll still be a future. Plenty of times did cinema try their hands on imagining a post-apocalyptic future.
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.
The best films from then and today do not only rely on good scripts and the arcs in storytelling. Visual storytelling is 50% of a film, too, and it's the scene that should say it all. Subjective perspective is one of the approaches to make compelling cinematography.
Calling out all creatives! We all know that art is what makes up our lives. It's the passion that gives us the will and purpose to live. So, without further ado, here are the bad habits you'd want to cut for an enriching, creative life.
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!
Fashion is cyclical, and just when we thought we're all ready to burn those bell bottoms and floral tops, fashion has its way trends back from the dead. In the images of Nick Dewolf, 70's fashion couldn't be any more pulled off by the Boston youth.
