In the winter, I struggle to find things to photograph. I was recently cleaning out my office, see my goals for 2018 and found these old cameras. They seemed like the perfect subject matter for a quick still life photo shoot.
I bought the Holga 120s for $12 in 1991 while in college. My favorite thing about the Holga was the vignette and the unpredictable light leaks. The photos always put me in mind of the early days of photography and felt nostalgic to me. Seeing it again made me want to go out and make some of those type of photos. I managed to scrounge up some of those old photos.
This was the 35mm film camera that I used when I Pentax K-1000 got stolen. I loved that Pentax, too. The Olympus and I did fine. But I don’t miss it much.
I can’t decide which I like better, the black and white or the color versions. What’s your opinion?
