Fun With Holga

For Christmas I received a set of Holga lenses and filters that I played with today down on the Mall.  The Holga camera was a cheap plastic camera developed in China in the early 1980’s.  Many photographers grew fond of the grainy, imperfect images that the Holgas took and started creating a whole bunch of Holga accessories.  Today you can buy Holga lens kits for DSLR cameras to achieve that signature grainy, halo-y look.  This was my first experiment with the Holga lens.

  1. I like the look you get with those lenses.

  2. Nice effects! Are the lenses plastic, too?
