Stuff I saw with a Holga

Despite having no kitchen and limited bathroom, with bits of plaster hanging for dear life on the walls, I managed to develop some film this weekend.

This roll of hp5 is from the trusty holga. I had the holga laying in my bag for sometime, so I genuinely didn’t know what was on the roll of film. Places range from Lincolnshire to Nottinghamshire. It’s sorta like a practice for holga week.

Stuff I saw in Nottingham

I have been holding off posting this, as some of the images I am using for neopantastic. As its post week, I don’t think it matters now.

The following was taken with my leica m2, voigtländer 35mm f/2.5 + yellow filter, with bergger pancro 400

Stuff I saw at Upper Padley

On Wednesday we went to upper padley, in the peak district. Rather than taking my usual hiking setup of a tripod and a pinhole camera, I took my gas stove instead for hot drinks. As a lightweight alternative I took my holga, my m2, and film.

I know the place well enough now, so at times I found myself shooting for shallow depth of field and getting close, something that I don’t normally do. I don’t normally shoot wider than f8 unless the subject calls for it, such as a portrait in a busy environment.

I’m not that happy with the images, but it was a nice walk with the leica.

I have yet to develop the film from the holga, if it comes out okay in development, I’ll share in a second part.
