Holga: 1st roll, Ebell Club

Posted in Event, Film, Holga, Photography, Portraiture, Wedding by daybf on December 20, 2010

I received a Holga camera for my birthday, and I was eager to start experimenting with it. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Holga, it’s a medium-format plastic camera known for unpredictable light leaks, soft focusing, double-exposure capability, and vignetting. Each one is unique and produces odd effects of its own. So really this camera has a cult following based on its inconsistency and unpredictability.

I went to Long Beach for 4 days as a bridesmaid in my friend Nina’s wedding, so I put it to good use. The first roll I had developed is actually the 2nd roll I’ve taken (1st and 3rd roll are still being processed) and took place at the wedding site: the beautiful Ebell Club.

My favorite from inside the Bridal Room:

Tying Nina’s corset, and a double exposure of the ceremony hall as seen from the balcony on the second floor:
I am in love with this sofa-seen here with Nina’s bouquet:
