Tipster Of The Day: Cut Parts & Pull Shapes


If you think you’ve seen and tried all the Holga Modifications possible, look again…

If you think you’ve seen and tried all the Holga Modifications possible, look again…


Here are a few chosen pics from my holgamodstuff using customised holga masks. Here’s how: just have yourself some cardboard or paper, make shapes out of it, put it in you holga frame, and shoot! Afterwards, use your spooled 120 film again and just repeat the process. Just make sure you place your holga mask in a slightly different position this time.

There’s always more to do and see than you thought with our beloved Holga. So please feed it with some films and abuse it with your crazy ideas! And when done, upload your lo-fi plastic Holgavisions here.

    ok, i am a little late, but: i think it works with all analogue cameras, but it's easiest with the holga because of the 120 format. i think it could be quite difficult with 35 mm, but, try it!
