the holga experience by bzed the holga experience by bzed
Dresden, Germany

first tests with my new holga.
this cam rocks!

triple exposure

ilford delta 100, developed in dd-x


update: new, much better scan. while scannign I realized that it's actually a triple exposure and not a double exposure - the old scanner just didn't show the part of the fountain within the bright area/sky.

How does this keep happening? I look at drawings, stuff I actually know something about, and people are like sensitive or something, and don't want criticism... now I just want to look at the pretty pictures, and someone wants the "advanced critic."

OK, here goes. Over-exposure means spending five minutes with me. Does that help?

Water dandelions! How cool is that? :highfive:

i have to admit that the exposure is not 100%, I'd say it's about 0.5-1 stop underexposured, but the scanner is able to fix that ;)
but - thank you :aww:

kann nie genug holga geben ;)
Wär interessant wenn die anderen exposures etwas mehr durchkommen würden, die eine ist sehr dominant (würd auch nicht erkennen dass es 3 sind)
Aber sowas lässt sich bei der Kamera auch schlecht planen ^^

sehr zu empfehlen ist ürbigens auch das polaroid rückteil (wenn einen die teuren Filme nicht stören)

tjoah, mit sowas muss man halt bei mehrfachbelichtungen leben, vor allem bei einer Holga...
fuer das Polaroid back hatte ich leider noch kein Geld uebrig, kommt aber auch noch irgendwann.

danke fuer den comment!

I actually wouldn't have picked this for a double exposure, until I saw the bottom right hand corner. I like that this is completely organic and looks like, besides the bottom right one entire image. I haven't come across a double exposure as subtle as this yet. Great work :D

Now I wanna use my Holga even more! :(

It's hard to critique a shot with a Holga because of the unpredictable nature of the camera. Even a bad shot with a Holga can be interesting. I like the look of this photo. It is a bit over exposed, but that is tough to control with such limited controls. I like the vignetting. Nice job. :thumbsup:

Holgas are so much fun, and I love doing double exposures with them too. Your subjects seem interesting. Combination of architecture and people. I like those dandelion-like things located in the center- they unite the architecture and the people in how they are structured and in a sense "standing up." The tones are kinda cool, but it's a little too gray. I know how when developing these it's hard to get a good exposue time in the darkroom because it is a double exposure. But the holga is one of those cameras that intentionally leaves flaws and somehow "betters" the photograph with light leaks and the sort. Maybe if you used a filter to lessen the gray and bring out the darks/lights :shrug: unless if you did use one.

Thanks a lot for your long comment! :aww:
The exposure was not too bad, seems I had guessed the cam's shutter time well.
Since this was more or less a test shoot, and I didn't have much time - the greys/tones are the original tones produces by silverfast and the scanner. Didn't change anythign on them.
But Holgas are definitey fun, and I'll continue to use it, and probably buy a second one to have to different film speeds ready.

I don't normally comment on photos, however this one has a beautiful, surreal quality that made me hold my breath for a moment.
Simple yet stunning, to say the least.

Amazing capture. Sepia fits this so perfectly. I love the abstract nature of this shot as well as the DOF only an Holga can give.
