much love monday [holga photo!]

21 comments
As promised: my first Holga photo on the blog! This photo was probably the most "normal" looking one out of the whole roll, because most of the other photos are a bit of a mess (I think I went crazy experimenting with the different lens filters, but I'll show them to you later on in the week). I used a red flash on this photo, which probably didn't do much but intensify the red hearts and added a hint of red on the tree branch where the string hangs on. I have to say I'm impressed by the sharp focus and depth of field (that's what it's called, right? hah, am such a newbie), which I would have expected from an SLR but not from a lomo (the newbie is learning!).

Oh, and the the heart garland is from Katrina of Pugly Pixel and Mr. Rabbit Sir.

I'm totally astounded by the depth of field too, especially considering it's a toy camera. Yay for new formats and cameras :)

Hey Harriet said...

Wow that's gorgeous Anna! And congrats on surviving your first day on the new job!

tegan said...

holga's are sooo risky like that, you get so many pictures that you have paid to get developed that turn out wrong... but then there's always a beautiful one that's worth it all :) xo

I've been super slow at blog commenting this week. I hate when I get behind on some of my favorites - like yours!

Since I'm talking about favorite things, this photo is easily one of my favorites of yours! I love it. The depth of field is really surprising, considering the camera. Very cool! I'm still so happy for you about winning the Holga :)
