Wow. I love it :o

Waiting for my first film to be developed (? :D ) at the moment... I'm excited.

I hope your film comes back with some pleasing shots. Remember, lomography often yields surprises, and whilst you might not always get shots that work, magic is often produced.

I recently had a holga film developed that contains the best shot that I think I've ever taken with it. Unfortunately, the film didn't quite expose properly, and I can only half-see the image; a glimpse at what might have been.

Thank you for replying :D

The film came back today and I already uploaded some photos. And you're right, I didn't expect those pictures.. But that's what attracts me so much. :))

Hope I'll take someday a photo like this one from you. It's stunning.

Wow! Very cool!

I have just tried my first film! A lot of pics went very dark and crap, I didn't expose enough (it was cloudy) :( but 2 went great!:) Did you use long exposition? How long have you exposed the film?

Thanks for the comment.

In regards to this image, no, I didn't use a long exposure. It was shot using the sunny aperture (f/11 equivalent) and the 'N' shutter speed setting (or 1/100th equivalent).

Remember that's it's early days - you need to get to know your camera. May I ask what film speed you were using? Using a low ISO like ISO100 film would probably result in underexposed images on a cloudy day. The holga has only two shutter speeds - 1/100th and bulb - and the former may be a little too slow on a low ISO film on a cloudy day. As a rule, I generally use ISO400 film in my holga, as you're covered for most eventualities in regards to daylight.

I shoot plenty of duff images with my holga, but I've also produced a few gems as well; stick in there. :)

Great shot!
Now I'm even more anxious to get my holga!
Do you also have a plastic lens or just the glass?
