holga

This week I bought a Holga lens for my Nikon as a sort of (early) Christmas present for myself. As someone who has never really gotten into film, but has always wanted a Holga camera (I will forever regret not getting one when they were only $10 at Urban Outfitters) this lens is great! Now I can get the fun distorted images without the hassle of having to buy film and get it developed. Perfect!

It’s a bit tricky to get used to it, as it has a fixed focal length of 60mm and an aperture of roughly f/11 (aka it would do best outdoors in the sunlight), but if you ramp up the exposure, shutter speed, and ISO you should be able to get some really cool shots. I can’t wait until I can really take it for a spin!
