    a couple holga shots.

    Hello all,
    Hope you've enjoyed good holidays.
    Don't get much of a chance to post these days...
    Here's a couple off my holga- finally got one -as a gift for Christmas, been buggering for one for ages and just never picked one up, definitely quirky and fun- a nice break.
    We had snow Christmas day, so that was a treat since we're still pretty new to Portland, and we had our Bay Area family in town... naturally had to get a second shot after the snow cleared up of all the cousins.

    Re: a couple holga shots.

    So that's what you've been doing!

    Love these, especially the footprints in the snow. I've got a holga as well, sadly, it's sitting in it's box with a roll of film in it. Film is done, I just need to get it processed, I think I finished it about a year ago.
    I sleep, but I don't rest.

    OK the pressure is on. I got a Holga for Christmas and it's still in the box. Got to get some film and tape and I'm good to go. Nice job on your first Holga shots.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Steve,
    Funny you should say that.... the vernacular usage for bugger, buggery and buggering is pretty diversified from what I am guessing you're implying... ;)
    But thanks forthe comments on the shots. I've taken 3 rolls, and Ihave maybe a half dozen I like.

    Nope, no additional lighting. Was outside mid-morning (Christmas morning) however I did tweak the neturals and blacks in PS as I wasnt satisfied with their saturation before.

    Adina,
    Shamefully- I have done much of nothing...
    (well, speaking photographically).
    Ending our first year in Portland, we had a ton of activities going on... none of which really allowed much time for shootin' around aside from snapshots.

    But you, have certainly been busy- love all the new shots you've posted!

    Hi Rebekah

    Missed you around here - Lucky you; snow on Christmas day.

    I dream of snow at the moment, but all we get in Basingstoke is high winds and rain - I mean lots of rain :lol:

    Great picture of the family and I really like the tracks in the snow. What made the short tracks?

    Hope you had a good New Year.

    Roger

    Since you mentioned it, If you look at this ling, http://www.lomotw.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=122872, it says just that!
    You'd have to translate it from Cantonese to English though!
    It's a toy camera forum from Taiwan, that lists my name and site and calls me, and others, "Holga Masters".

    I came across the forum, because I was getting hits on my site from it.
    It's all in fun, but I feel honored to be listed as such with such a group.

    ..to the Holga Master! Very impressive, Brian...

    BTW, the official language and dialect in Taiwan is Mandarin, not Cantonese, although I'm pretty sure the written characters are the same...

    Brian,

    I think you need to change your strap line from Nikon Samurai to Holga Master :lol:

    Not sure if I should congratulate you or what but congrats anyway.

    Brian, you should definitely put your new title in your signature, but it should be in Manderin.

    Nice shots, Rebeca. :thumbsup:
