I am an architecture student in venice, and become interested in analog photography after i found my dad’s olympus om1. Might be funny but i discovered about the Holga using an iPhone app called “camera bag” that features some “vintage” filters. I really loved the square format and started googling here and there to find out something about the medium format film. Ended buying a Holga from China for a very cheap price, then i walked in at the local photo lab and asked for a 120 roll, they had it, an ilford bw. Shooting with a Holga is really a spiritual experience, you find yourself thinking deeply before every shot (i do not agree that much with lomography slogans), it’s just about your eye, no settings to adjust. Holga really brings photography to its primitive being.

hi! um… I got reminded about this terrific blog through the filmwasters forum, where I’m known as jojonas, and I thought I’d give this a shot(!)

There is just so many talented holgagraphers on the blog that I’ve been content with just giving it a peek now and then to feel the inspiration.
I’d be honoured if I could join holgaville and I’m therefore sending you a photo that I’m very fond of.. I shot it last winter when visiting my home town up north in sweden. I really miss the winter from up there and this time I tried to shoot as many kicksleds that I could find! they really remind me of my growing up there.

I’ve been shooting with my holga since the start of 2008, or more precisely, from christmas 2007, I was really taken when I stumbled upon the camera and some example shots. suddenly photographing could be something creative for me! not just recording a moment in time but more putting a grand and a bit strange feeling to the shots. with how simple the camera was I started pretty early to explore how I could modify it to better suit me. it was a feeling of relief since I’ve grown up thinking that you should always be very careful with a camera. this was whole mine and I was free to do whatever I wanted with it and shoot whatever I felt like. I was a bit shocked at first because of the cost to develop and make prints -specialy for black and white! so I’m really glad that I now have learned to develop myself. I have actually developed this shot as well with a tetenal c-41 kit (the film is velvia 50 by the way).

so yeah, I’ve got more cameras than I can remember right now but I always return to what started this film photography craze for me, my beloved holga 🙂

cheers!
