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.

I like the look you get with those lenses.
Nice effects! Are the lenses plastic, too?
Yes, Jane. All plastic!
