This is the 2nd Holga roll from Long Beach where I spent four days with a group of ladies doing nothing but girly things prepping for Nina’s wedding day. Shopping for hair accessories, getting our nails and hair done etc…

Holga: 1st roll, Ebell Club

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.
