The only problem with the great Holga-Lenses is that you can’t see the focus-settings. I found a really easy way to mark it and resolve this issue.
So I designed the labels with a label printer, you can do it with other stickers, with a white marker and other symbols. For me, the simple version with 1 – 2 – 3 – 4 is enough and there are no symbols on my label printer.
First I put the lens-attachment on the Holga, so that the slots from the lens-attachment are left and right of the symbols. I pushed the lens not till the end on the optic so that the symbols are visible.
Then I started to stick the individual numbers on the lens-attachment. Make sure you don’t twist the lens-attachment on the optic because it isn’t really tight.
I made this for all three lens-attachments.
Now the problem where i do the focus settings is away. In addition, I stick on the top of the Holga a N, so I remember to check if I turn from B to N!
Have fun with my new Tipster! Hopefully it will help anybody.
With an expanded field of view and its ability to produce high quality images and capture minute detail, medium format photography has become the top choice of many photographers. Lomography is working hard to make sure that it keeps going with the continued production of medium format film and cameras.

One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.

I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!

Would you rather lose your vision or your hearing? As photographers, we might choose the latter without a second thought, especially while viewing the festival photos that photographer Mart Vares captured with the New Petzval 85 Lens. Still, who doesn’t love the pleasant mechanical shutter sound of an old SLR that makes us commit to analog photography? While following the Nordic delegation at this years Waves Central Europe, we caught up with the Estonian band, Würffel, whose songs leave us feeling equally delighted.
