One of the mantra's of lomography is not to think, just to shoot. This is some good advice, though if I'm honest,my best holga shots have indeed involved a bit of thought.
It'll probably take a few rolls to get to know your model's particular quirks ie, how it vignettes, where the focal soft spot is etc. Don't be disheartened if you don't get the results you're looking for at first - perseverance is key.
Most holga's come with a 6x4.5 insert to shoot rectangular images, and 6x6 for square: use the latter, as that's where most of the holga's optical pecadillos become apparent.
May I ask what camera did you use on this? I'm looking photos captured using analog cameras, and right now I'm planning to make my first feature journal devoted to all analog users out there... Especially ones that using medium format film
perhaps you can give me some reference? thank you...
In general, football is a bit take-it-or-leave-it with me. I much prefer the international game over the domestic game, but I'm not someone who feverently goes out of my way to watch the footie, unless it's something like the World Cup. Plus I'm at home at the mo and don't have Sky.
I got mine from ebay, and whilst some grumble about that, I had no problem. I got mine shipped from Hong Kong (the 120GCFN model) and it came to about the grand total of £15-£20. If you can find a local processing place (perhaps professional), then getting the negs done should be no problem. Even places like jessops will do them, I think.
I love the way the vignette has almost caused the middle rope to bleach out. There's some great detail in there which is impressive cos shooting that close with a Holga often leads to it being out of focus or it looking too soft.
