Something of a Tipster that you shouldn’t and never forget when shooting with the Holga!
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. Remember: Set B back to N! the subsequent image taken the following day were not meant to be taken on B setting. Remember: Set B back to N! 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! One telltale sign to look out for is your Holga CFN making a sound as though the shutter has been fired on the downwards press. 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!

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.

When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
