HOLGA Moments

I highly recommend shooting with a Holga. This is no frills option to break it all up creatively. In the digial age we are slammed with the hunt for perfection. As a photographer the loss of the "unknown" is a killer. The reveal in the darkroom is gone. Shooting with the Holga gives me the chance to get back to a place of risk and creativity.  In this shot I did not realize the shutter was broken on the camera until after I loaded the film. So, you just guess at how long to keep the shutter open and wing it. Some beautiful things can happen if you just show up.
