I've noticed that your Holga images don't have the light leaks that mine have. I was wondering how you fixed that. If you use tape where do you tape and how do you determine where the light leaks are? Thanks for your help.
I was wondering if you could tell me a little more about which films you use, which film speeds and how you meter for the Holga and which type of meter you use. Do you use the Holga filters and if so which ones? What compensation would one use if using the filters? I have 2 Holgas and 1 Woca. I have shot only 2 rolls with my Woca and am just starting with the Holgas. I use ISO 400 film as per their recommendations. I will be using a Pentax 1° spotmeter and Ilford Delta 100, Bergger BRF 200 B&W films and have been using Ilford Delta 400. I use Kodak Portra 400 now and will be using Kodak Portra 160, Agfa Optima 200, Fujifilm NPZ 800 and Kodak portra 800 color films. I can always change the color to B&W in the computer. Maybe I will try the Ilford 3200 also. I will experiment because that's what I love doing. I was just wondering what compensations you might be using when metering or if you just go with what the meter dictates. i.e. if the meter says 1/100 shutter f11( or f8) would require 100 speed film is that what you use? I would appreciate any advice you would have for me or if you could lead me to other resources. Thank You James C.
Hi Michelle, Some of your images look wide angle - is there a different model Holga that is wide angle or is it that you are just closer to your subject. I especially loved the park bench image! Thanks. Christine
Ms. Bates, My teacher is trying to start a "toy camera" class at our Jr college. We are getting together to talk about different ideas for the class and to create an outline to submit to the board at the school. I was just wondering if you had any advice or if there is anything you think we should focus on. Thanks in advance, Bernadette
After 30 years in advertising I now teach at my Alma Mater in Detroit. The Dept chair would like me to teach a class in January using alternative cameras. My question: Can you suggest a few assignments that work well with the Holgas? I have your wonderful Plastic Camera book and it does give me a few ideas. Thank you for any suggestion. -Peggy D. P.S. - I went from 20 years of 8x10 work to a Canon EOS, so this plastic camera idea for assignments is a riot to me!
