New Pictures: Holga!

I just uploaded some Holga pictures. The first few are from a test roll I took just to make sure I knew how to load and unload the film (120 film is very different than 35mm film) before Elanora came over. The rest are from two rolls taken during the shoot with Elanora. 120 film gives 12 exposures at 6x6cm.

I think they're fun, and it gives me some practice with a modern film workflow - scanning negatives and so forth - without spending a lot of money. I'll shoot a couple of rolls with my 35mm camera as well but I'm less interested in the smaller formats.

I modified my usual template to put a little explanation about Holgas and to slim down the purchasing options. My tentative plan is to create little Holga sections now and again. We'll see how it goes.

I haven't decided yet if I'm going to start developing my own film or not. There's some up front cost but break-even is around 15-20 rolls. You have more control, and I save two trips to the lab (two hours) which will offset the labor but at least initially there's probably more chance of actually destroying a roll.
