Like aliens, Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster, our Photos of the Week theme is a little legendary, hard to catch and all the way breathtaking!
Some lomographers (including me), go their whole lives without encountering one. Getting one is a mystery in itself, leaving camera experts dumbstruck on how to produce one consistently. What are we talking about? Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the infamous number leak – a one-of-a-kind light leak in medium format that emblazons the frame count numbers into your shot, giving it a unique and more often than not, unrepeatable effect.
Some have tried in vain to open the backs of their Holgas a bit but it just results in a normal leak. So how does one do it? No one knows. Sometimes its just a trait of the older Holgas. Maybe someday, we’ll find the answer. But for now, we will have to contend to watch and admire these beauties from our Photos page. Enjoy and start hunting those elusive numbers today!
