The Holga is a cheap 120 film toy camera known for blurry pictures, light leaks, and heavy vignetting. Entire portfolios of images made with Holgas have appeared in fine art photography magazines.
The Holga images presented here are NOT created with a Holga because, you know, film. They are imposters, created during post-processing using a Holga filter. This is my (lazy) way of exploring this unusual area of photography.
I considered the image titled "Bending Tree" to be a failure. Shot with a Canon Powershot S70 in a bobbing kayak, it was less than sharp. But somehow -- at least to my eyes -- being "crappified" with the Holga simulation brought the image to life (but hopefully not in a Frankenstein sort of way).
