Chasing Sunsets at Lower Peirce Reservoir!

Hey everyone!

We’re sure that everyone appreciates a beautiful, colour-streaked sunset that inspires optimism and admiration for nature!

Holga Week 2017! – Holga with Instax Mini Colour Film

Hey everyone!

This week is Holga Week, and in tribute to the iconic ‘toy’ street camera, we have dedicated this week’s entry to our experiences with the Holga camera! Previously, we shared about Holga’s history and encounter with the Holga 120 GCFN; this time, we used the specially-developed instant film back for the Holga camera!

This model allows the user to look downwards through a separate viewfinder (as a homage to older twin-lens reflex cameras), but retains the unique noisy vignetting that the Holga camera is well known for.
