52 Cameras – Week 16 results – Holga 135BC

The Holga 135BC is simply fun to shoot. My example has lost its focus guide so I've replaced it with simple Sharpie dots to indicate close-up, portrait, group, and landscape settings. Using the wide angle lens requires setting the focus at infinity and forgetting it, which makes shoot-from-the-hip street photography incredibly easy. The shutter has a quiet click, so you can shoot in public without attracting much attention.

I think I don't shoot this camera enough. Lately when I feel like a Holga, I tend to use the medium format version. This one is easier to pocket and takes up to 36 shots per roll.

For this week's project, the BC was loaded with Fuji Pro 400H. I've actually been carrying it intermittently for a few weeks, as 36 exposures can be a lot. :-). The results are nicely funky, with a strange centered artifact from the wide angle lens.

Week four, all rolled into one post.

This was supposed to be a double exposure, but I wound the camera out of habit. Oops.

I am an engineer, after all.

I snuck this one with the Voigtlander Bessamatic (Kodak Gold 400) while passing through the USCG Station Portsmouth Harbor on the way to shoot Fort Constitution.

My madness for the month has ended, but I’ve recently installed a darkroom so this is not the last of my film photography.

We’re lucky to have her, and it was a lucky shot.

Self explanatory, methinks.

And a bonus from week 4:

The rest are still off at the lab. I’ve been shooting a lot, but it has been divided among 4 cameras.  I’m really looking forward to the first roll in the Yashicamat LM.
