This is Holga. I discovered her via Emmanuel, the photographer we have hired for the wedding in Mexico. Every picture he has posted via the Holga has made me catch my breath. They are that amazing. The pictures created with this camera are not crisp. They are not as brightly hued as the quality you would get were you to use a digital camera but, the effect created by the film is unbelievably nostalgic. Which is exactly the feeling I want to capture while touring Ireland with my husband.
Here is an example of what the Holga can capture:
Isn't it absolutely beautiful? Hopefully I'll get a chance to play around with one before departing to Mexico. And, hopefully, I can persuade Emmanuel to put his Nikon down every so often to capture June 26th with Holga in hand, too...
