I recently moved, and one good thing about unpacking boxes is that you find unexpected things. In one box, I found an old portable flash drive that contains a lot of the first photos that I took as a budding photographer. One thing that I LOVED to do, and still do love, is stuff a roll of 35mm film into my Holga CFN 120 and seeing what I get. The above photo is just and example of some of the cool things that have come out of that camera. I want to share my 35mm Holga finds with you, complete with film sprockets.
Funny, whenever I would get this film developed and explained how I wanted it developed, Dianne, the woman at the lab I would speak with, would give me a funny look. I wanted the film laid flat and not cut up into individual images. I also didn’t want prints for that reason, but rather get them on a CD. Here’s a great explanation of the process here.
Enough of me blathering along. Let’s get to the photos!!
These are just cars at a show that seemed like they’d make an interesting shot.
Here’s a montage of floral photos on 35mm film put into a Holga.
This one is a great because it shows the double exposure capabilities you can use with a Holga, too.
Ah! Color! I remember taking these at my old apartment.
There, I think you get the point on what you can get out of a Holga CFN 120 camera when you use it with 35mm film. I remember where I put that Holga, too, when unpacking. I might have to go get a roll of 35mm film for it today and start using it.
