What's a photo blog without a Holga shot?...

This is Marshall Field. Home of the Thundering Herd! I shot this on a trip to see the wife's relatives in Huntington West Virginia a while back. I've owned a Holga that I bought from Holga Mods for close to a couple years now and have yet to shoot a person with it (other than some initial snapshots for testing the thing out). Let this be a promise to myself. I Brooks Ayola, promise to shoot some people with my Holga... Soon!

Ah, but my Holga is from Holga Mods so it has a little thingamabober on it that you can pull out to hold the shutter open. You can also get them with tripod sockets and all other sorts of modifications.

i downloaded some shit on how to modify ours. Funny stuff, those Holgas. They only weigh like .2 oz.

No problem Shannon. A Holga is a cheap plastic toy camera that can shoot medium format (120) film. If you follow the "Holga Mods" link above, you can read all about them. It's a cheap, fun way to take pictures that have a certain fine art quality to them. Well, it takes more than clicking the shutter, but you know what I mean. :-)
