A true example of my procrastination skills at work: I had not, until now, gotten around to having two rolls of film developed that I shot in April of 2010! Here are my favorite shots, the rest follow later.
the half-size eiffle tower
the grand canyon
palm trees and blue sky
the giant MGM lion
It was in April that I took a trip with my friend to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. I decided while packing that I didn’t want to bring my Sony camera along as it is on the bigger side, and I worried about it geting stolen. It wasn’t until I was acctually on the strip in Las Veags taking in the sights that I regretted this decision. While on our first day of exploring I found a Holga camera on sale with black and white film. It had been years since I used a film camera and thought it would be fun to give it a new try.
Holga cameras are pretty neat little devices, playing off the very basics in photography they can do all sorts of things if you know how to use them. I opted to just use the basic functions and see how some shots turned out.
The first few shots are my favorites. Here is the whole series. They are developed straight off the film and have not been photoshopped whatsoever.
