I have always wanted a Holga camera and can't quite put my finger on why it has taken me so long to get one. Well, I finally got one. I have long been a big fan of the Holga and love its natural vignette and soft focus that is characteristic of these plastic lens toting cameras and have always wanted to be behind the lens one. I just loaded my first roll of film today and should have some pics back by wednesday. It was a little different than shooting digital, which is now what I consider to be my "traditional" way of shooting. I found myself pulling the camera away from my face and looking at the back expecting to see what I just shot and being the type of person who likes instant gratification, I find myself over-anxiously waiting for my pictures to come back so I can see them.
