A while back I wrote a post about a particularly disappointing experience I had with a Holga. The quick version: high hopes, much enthusiasm, shooting spree, film developed, devastation. After the Fantastic Plastic show we had in the fall, I got a renewed enthusiasm and decided to give it another go. The quick version: see above.
Somehow in the span of one year, either the $25 camera deteriorated in functionality, or I did. Now I’m not saying I’m a master photographer, but I do have a pretty successful portrait business, and I know how to take a picture. Unfortunately, each of these images look like I had a seizure when I pressed the shutter button.
So it is official. I am moving on. Not looking back. I have been bested by a piece of cheap plastic, masquerading as a really cool camera. Bitter? A bit.
See for yourselves. . .
