Ireland by Holga

If you’ve been following along the blog, you know that when I went to Ireland, I took with me a Holga toy camera that shoots panoramic images on 120 black and white film. I finally have gotten the film processed and am excited to show some of my favorite images here.

Despite my best efforts to prevent light leaks, many of the images were scarred with them. The light leaks are less disappointing than the exposure letters and dots burned into the film. Some people have contributed these to a bad batch of film. At this point, though, I have to contribute them to light leaks in the frame counter window, since the entire roll wasn’t afflicted. You can see some of the issues I experienced here.

I have to say that I am pleased with the results I got from this plastic camera. However, I continue to be shocked by the cost and the risk associated with shooting film. I have much greater respect for the great film photographers, and much more gratitude for the freedom shooting digital allows.
