Inspired art: Holga Dreams

My S.O. and I have been enamored with the surreal, dreamy imperfection of Holga photography and finally bought a Holga 135BC camera. We have gone on FOUR "photo shoots" and have not produced a single photo yet. After the first three rolls of film were totally botched, we watched a bunch of Youtube instructional videos before our next excursion. We finally felt prepared, so we went to the mission in San Juan Capistrano and took some very magical pictures of sun-dappled gardens, fountains and crumbling architecture. And the film was yet again blank. We are in search of lessons, since it is overtly obvious we are hopeless Holga photographers. The work of these Etsy holga masters is what we aspire to;

  1. Good luck. One of my best friends just bought her first Holga. They intimidate the heck out of me.
