I'm neck deep in edits the last several weeks. Including Weddings, Models from Academie, Senior Portraits and a few miscellaneous things - not to mention a lot of work in helping to build a "start up/entrepreneurial" community here in Watertown. I just haven't had much time for myself.
So, late this afternoon when my computer was all tied up doing exports, I decided to grab some Holga lenses that I had purchased a couple of years ago and take a walk around Uptown Watertown and just see what might happen.
If you are unfamiliar with Holga, here is some background from Wikipedia: The Holga's low-cost construction and simple meniscus lens often yields pictures that display vignetting, blur, light leaks, and other distortions. The camera's limitations have brought it a cult following among some photographers, and Holga photos have won awards and competitions in art and news photography
In my case, I am not shooting with a Holga camera, but I've purchased Holga lenses that fit onto my professional Nikon camera. I purchased them from Holga Direct.
These lenses are quite difficult to see through in my DSLR viewfinder and require slow shutter speed and high ISO. So, in a way there isn't a lot of settings I can play with. I simply point the camera at what I am interested in, play with the shutter speed a bit and take whatever I can get. Without further ado, here's what I shot on my little walk.
