Holga

March 19, 2010

It may have been shot on a plastic camera, with a plastic lens, but it goes to show that there is no substitute for negative real estate. This image was an impromtu portrait that I took last weekend. The model is Don Anderson, who is the creator of the Pioneer Village in Karoonda, South Australia. This image looks just great at full size from the 4000dpi scan. I took a spare B+W orange filter and taped it to the front of the Holage, threw in a roll of Fuji Neopan Acros, and snapped away. In my haste, a set the film to the 6×4.5 setting, and all my images overlapped. I was able to salvage most, and the normal vignetting on the 6×6 is not evident on the smaller frames.
