Joe Young Photography | Holga


March 08, 2011  •  Leave a Comment

I always keep a Holga loaded in my car to capture images only a Holga can capture. A Holga is a plastic 120 medium format plastic camera. It's imperfections make images unique and unpredictable. These include vignettes, soft focus, and light leaks that create dreamlike effects.

With digital cameras why bother? Because for one it is fun. You still can't beat not knowing how your pictures turned out and watching a print appear in the developing tray. Taking pictures is also simple so I can concentrate on composition and capturing the moment.

The above images are from recent roll. My subjects is usually my children who are never shy in front of the camera.
