this was taken today morning.....
the past week i've been looking at a lot of holga shots,had a conversation with phil from terrorkitten and ben in this regard as well.

really wanted to get one, 30$ is cheap,but im not too sure if 120film is easily available and if i'll be able to get them processed nearby,anyhow the rubber cup of my camera broke off,and i thought i'd place that in front of the camera to get a sort of, say pinhole effect....and the holga like vignetting,hehe trying to make an expensive dslr shoot like a cheap 30$ camera....!
love the effect holga's produce,like the 'paint' like colours,the vignetting,the light streaks....does anyone know where i could learn to process like that.....? sam..?

Very well done! I like this. Experimentation is everything in photography. Never tried Holga style processing though. Mal
shiv ahuja: aaah,thanks mal,glad you like it...!

The shot looks like something you could dig out of, say, a grandfathers box of photos. An old feel. I like it a lot. Nice job.
shiv ahuja: thanks p.j

Very creative, nicely done!!

Good luck on the whole Holga thing. If more of us start shooting film, it will be easier to find the labs to get the good work done. Hope things work out positively for you.
shiv ahuja: thanks micki...! looking at your film work,everyone would want to shift back....!!

This is Shiv, I wish it was bit sharper though!
shiv ahuja: hehe, well i thought if its a bit sharper,the holga feeling would kinda vanish...!

I think a square crop might work better for this type of shot. But it's a nice experiment. I like the effect.
shiv ahuja: thanks laurie,thanks for pointing that out,holga shots should be square...!

shiv ahuja: thanks navin,
i have a shot or two of the terminal in bombay,but nothing worth posting....
