I have always been interested in photography but only recently have I discovered a whole new world of plastic toy film
cameras. Like most casual photographers I converted to digital photgraphy about ten years ago. I was becoming complacent
with my shots because the camera did everthing automatically and the results were instantaneous.
Recently I found my old Olympus RD 35mm Range Finder camera up in a closet that had not seen daylight for 25 years. It
seemed to be working fine but took it in to have it serviced and cleaned up. While I was searching the internet about film
cameras I ran across the "Holga" camera. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holga
I was quickly smitten with the whole idea of using an inexpensive object to make some stunning photos. I also enjoy being
able to use both 120 medium fomat film and 35mm film. Also using both B & W and color.
I have only been doing this for a short while and my experiences, techniques and knowledge are still in the testing
stages but I have been satisifed with many of the results.
I currently own three "Holga" cameras (Models: 120tlr, 120n and 135tlr) in addiiton to recent purchases of a "Blackbird,
Fly" and "Lubitel Universal".
This web site includes both 120 B & W photos and a few 35mm color photos. Hope to add more soon.
