Holga Photography

Holga Cameras are a kind of inexpensive toy cameras that were developed in 1982. The Holga was intended to provide an inexpensive mass-market camera for working-class Chinese in order to record family portraits and events. Although the camera looks cheap and plastic it is widely used by a lot of photographers as it captures sureal photos due to imperfections and light leaks. Also the camera is really easy to take apart and to experiment with. Many different effects can be achieved by using different masks. The camera can be purchased for £16 on ebay. Dofferent kinds of Holga cameras are available but i would just recommend the Classic Holga 120N. Go ahead and buy one, you ll have fun.
