holga one way by electricjonny holga one way by electricjonny
this is the back of a church parking lot. i guess they decided they didn't need a pole to put this sign on, but it sure looks funny on the tree.

great shot :) strange to see a road sign attached to a tree...
I'm interested in developing some of my holga b+w pics, is it easy enough to do? Also, what scanner do you use?
Thanks

the film is pretty easy to develope. if you've ever developed 35 black and white, 120 is the same. just loading the film can be trickier because it's wider and curls a lot. you could always give it to the lab and have them develope it.

as for scanning, i have a Canon Lide 30 scanner, with no negitive attatchment or anything. i don't even know where to get a 120 format film scanner. so i put the negitive on the scanner with a peice of glass on top. then i put a few sheets of smooth photo printer paper on top of the glass. then i take a flourescent light and put that about two feet above that with the top of the scanner open. then i scan it in, invert it, flip it and tweak the curves to get it looking normal again. it takes a few tries to get the brightness looking right, adding more paper or taking paper away.

my last scans didn't turn out that great, but i think it's the light. im at school now and the light i was using didn't come with me.

yeah, it works surprisingly well. but my last batch didn't work that great. i think i'm seeing the fibers of the paper in the scan. still have to work that one out.

Cool! I am constantly amazed by the Holga and I have actually run across one on Lomography.com , is that where yours came from?

actually no, i saw them there and was about to buy one, but i found cheaper ones other places. the lomo site wanted $65 bucks or something, and i got mine for about $22. the lomo site included a book and some other minor things, but all i really wanted was the camera.
