Photography: Light Leaks

I retired my last Holga after the summer trip to Cambodia. It’s a wonderful camera but the light leaks started getting out of control as you can see from the colour shot from Cambodia below.

But I’ve been itching to buy a new one recently and now would be a good time.

Cycled since I was a kid, moved to Japan in 2001, bought my first 'serious' camera in 2005. Spent the later half of the 1990s travelling in Australia, Hong Kong, India, Nepal, Japan, and the Philippines and wish I'd photographed a lot more back then.

  1. I like the first and the last best. I dropped my first Holga down a staircase, and the second wasn’t quite as good. No doubt I’ll pick another up at some point. There is something delightful about the vignetting and the clarity of the lens which my real medium format cameras can’t emulate. And it’s a lot easier to carry around, too!
