Daily Deviation

Given 2014-02-18
Holga 70 by Valimar is a strong combination of concept and darkroom techniques to capture something with almost surrealistic elements. ( Suggested by ejrotsih and Featured by Kaz-D )

So many elements, yet they all compliment each other perfectly.
This photo reminds me a lot of David Lynch's work, very surreal and haunting :heart:

I didn't know what it meant so I googled it, and given your location, I took it to mean what came up.

Apologies. :)

thats weirdly beautiful!! i like how vintage it looks

do you have to buy a special lens or do something to the camera to get that type of look?
Reply
:iconvalimar:
Valimar Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2010
Thanks for the comment. :)

No, no special lens or camera alterations. The plastic lens of the holga has quite soft focus, and I also cross-processed the film, so they contributed massively to the overall look of the final shot.
