I started shooting film for the first time last summer and it has become kind of an obsession for me. Here are some of my latest photos from the holga 120N. It's a cheap old-fashioned plastic medium format camera.




















Thanks for looking!

These are all awesome! Great job, I have been wanting to get a Holga for some time now. I need to step it up and get one already. I really enjoy looking at the first and second ones. Have you ever thought of using 35mm film in the holga?

These pictures are awesome.  I have a medium format camera but the pictures aren't as dark as yours.  What is your film speed?  Do you develop your pictures your self?  I can't find anywhere that is reasonable to process my medium sized film.

Awesome! Are you from Bloomington?

Thanks! You should get one! I'd recommend searching the internet first though, so you don't end up blowing a bunch of money on gadgets or kits you don't want or need. I've never used 35mm in mine. Mostly because I love the square format and because I already have a couple cameras I use my 35mm film in. It does look pretty cool with the sprocket holes though.

Thanks! I wish I had my own darkroom (someday!), but for now I get the film processed at a local professional lab. Then instead of paying for prints I just scan the negs into my computer with a film scanner I bought on ebay for cheap. I usually use 400 speed on cloudy days/evening and 100-200 speed when it's sunny. Most of the time it just depends on what kind of film I have laying around...

Cool, I live in bloomington. Hm, the only other photo from there is the tables and chairs one with the lens flare. I took it outside Grazie. The rest are from South Bend where I go to school.
