35 mm adapter for Holga

My wonderful father bought me this great little adapter kit for my Holga. It allows me to shoot using 35 mm film. I love shooting in 120 film, but it's quite a bit more expensive to buy & develop. It's nice to have the option to shoot with something different.

I realize after my practice roll that it shoots & frames MUCH differently than 120 film. Here are a couple of my experiments...



I'm not sure if it's the way it's developed or if it's how it frames but either way they came out interesting.

cool, cool! And I'm pretty sure you are on the internet right now, because I just commented on another post and when it refreshed to show me my comment, there was a new one from you... mysterious.

Kristal- that's rad! On the other side of the world too- I dig it!

Es- I love the surprise with a roll of film vs. a digital camera.

Liv- Yeah! You'll have to post pictures & let me know how it works for you. It frames WAY differently (like cuts off the top 1/2) & I can't figure out how to shoot in square format (vs 4X6 format) let me know if you figure that out!

i think they're very artistic. sometimes you don't need frames...

Olivia Carter said...

April- Yeah, I like the monkey too.

Anelieze- Thanks I actually think so too- it's the art of not even looking through the viewfinder. Just shooting. I like that.
