Your Holga Loves Black and White Film


Holgas absolutely adore black and white film. The combination of a 120 Holga and some Black & White Lomography is a match made in heaven.

I used to always shoot and cross slide film with my Holga. The results were often mixed. Bright sunny days would produce vivid, colourful and bright shots; but on overcast days the plastic lens and small apature would often give disappointing results.

With black and white film in the Holga low light only enhances the vignette of the photo.

The lo-fi camera produces some pretty dramatic and moody images. Black and white can really upgrade the look of a photo.

Even when you make mistakes in scanning or developing, the image the image comes out well.

I love loading my Holga up with a roll of black and white 120. I think it’s fitting that such a basic camera should be loaded with no-frills film.

I can’t recommend enough loading some black and white film in your Holga and giving it a spin.
