Remember to reset the Holga CFN’s B setting to N after shooting a long exposure image. Remember: Set B back to N! The first image taken one evening on B setting was deliberate.

The rather dense negatives were still salvageable when scanning. Remember: Set B back to N! In some cases the results were quite engaging … but… Remember: Set B back to N!

Remember: Set B back to N! … then making the same sound again as you release the shutter lever. Remember: Set B back to N! Just in case i failed to mention it… Remember: Set B back to N!
