holga color love
The first color shots out of my Holga are finally done and scanned and I am in love (again). Unfortunately medium format color film is pretty pricey but I will have to splurge on it once in a while I think.
These were all taken at the last rodeo at the barn:
Aching feet after a day’s riding:
Yummy candy for sale:
The oppressive heat we’ve been having has been hard on the horseys as well, with little shade and lots of flies on their pastures:
And, to save the best for last (something I always find very hard to do…anyone seen the movie ‘Remember Me’? I have my dessert first too):
holga street photography
Finally, another Holga post! What with starting a full time job I feel I have been neglecting my photography a little. I’ve had the same film in my Holga for several weeks, but I finally got it developed and scanned.
Since I work in the big city now I have been mainly taking city pictures.
These two were taken in my hometown a couple of weeks ago:
There is a lovely old town hall there with a market square attached, where many little café’s have opened up in the last years.
This next one was in front of a little old bakery shop, on my lunch break at work. I saw the little poodle and had to take this picture. Have I mentioned I love poodles? No, really! If they are not shorn to have this ridiculous haircut I think they are adorable and pretty little dogs 🙂
And then the thing happened that was bound to happen when you carry a Holga around loosely in your bag for days: Unnoticed by me it switched to ‘bulb’ exposure (which means the shutter stays open as long as you press it) and the last photos came out blurry and overexposed. Weirdly enough, I kinda like the result, though I’m going to tape the bulb switch from now on and will be retaking the photos soon (luckily, all of these places are right out the door from work as well):
My scanning technique needs some work as well…it’s killing my notebook because the photos are way too big. Any tipps on how to scan? I scan at 4800dpi and don’t let the program do anything in terms of color or exposure adjustment or dust prevention…I prefer to do all that myself in photoshop but it really is too much for my poor notebook.
