As regular readers will be aware I’m a big fan of holga cameras. Cheap, plastic, terrible build quality, back prone to falling off mid roll two settings (sunny or shady) and with a crappy lens to boot.
I shot this last month whilst working on some pictures to use to make either gum bichromate prints or more likely in the short term, cyanotypes. I’m increasingly attracted to lo- fi and imperfections in prints. And I want to be able to hold something hand made, not just release pictures into the ether.
Anyway I figure I must have found a third hidden setting on the holga, the “movie star” setting!
Tri X shot in daylight at something like f11 and 1/100th of a second and stand developed in rodinal for an hour because it was probably hugely under exposed.
