Even after moving back in July, I’m still going through boxes. I had unpacked my Holga 120 CFN. This past Saturday I serenidipitously found a roll of 120 film in one of our boxes. I loaded it into my Holga as Sam was getting Sputnik ready for a walk. The Holga came along.
The top photo there is Sam walking Sputnik, who is happily sniffing along the rail trail near out home. We like walking that trail, dog included!
Here are a few more from the roll.
I have a few more in my album over on Flickr. Why not head over there and take a look at them?
I recently moved, and one good thing about unpacking boxes is that you find unexpected things. In one box, I found an old portable flash drive that contains a lot of the first photos that I took as a budding photographer. One thing that I LOVED to do, and still do love, is stuff a roll of 35mm film into my Holga CFN 120 and seeing what I get. The above photo is just and example of some of the cool things that have come out of that camera. I want to share my 35mm Holga finds with you, complete with film sprockets.
Funny, whenever I would get this film developed and explained how I wanted it developed, Dianne, the woman at the lab I would speak with, would give me a funny look. I wanted the film laid flat and not cut up into individual images. I also didn’t want prints for that reason, but rather get them on a CD. Here’s a great explanation of the process here.
Enough of me blathering along. Let’s get to the photos!!
These are just cars at a show that seemed like they’d make an interesting shot.
Here’s a montage of floral photos on 35mm film put into a Holga.
This one is a great because it shows the double exposure capabilities you can use with a Holga, too.
Ah! Color! I remember taking these at my old apartment.
There, I think you get the point on what you can get out of a Holga CFN 120 camera when you use it with 35mm film. I remember where I put that Holga, too, when unpacking. I might have to go get a roll of 35mm film for it today and start using it.
