I got a nice surprise while scrolling through Google Reader this evening. It turns out that one of my photos taken in Gran Canaria last year has been featured in Holga Blog’s Best Holga Photos from Flickr April 2009.

The chosen photo, By the Pool is below.

This colour roll had a mixture of photos from Gran Canaria and also a few from our wedding in August!

In the middle is one photo of friends taken before a gig in Brighton’s Coalition using a yellow flash.

The shots in Gran Canaria have come out really sharp and bright, while those taken in the UK are slightly under-exposed due to the overcast weather or use of flash and slower film (160 ISO).

There are a couple of weird double-exposures in there, too, and the same loose film exposure problems I had with the last couple of rolls.

These were taken using a Holga 120CFN with Fuji Pro 160C 160 ISO colour film and a 6x6cm mask.

I dug out a couple of Jane’s old 35mm cameras from the loft, and plan to have a play around with those when I get the chance. She has an Olympus Trip 35 and a Petri Color 35, which are both awesome in their ’60s Japaneseness.

Here are all twelve photos from my third roll shot in my Holga. This film also fell victim to a trapped sponge, and show varying degrees of damage caused by accidental exposure. This has the odd good as well as bad effect.

These were taken using a Holga 120CFN with Fuji Pro 160C 160 ISO colour film and a 6x6cm mask.

The remaining six photos from roll two are now up on Flickr.

These photos were shot on a Holga 120CFN using Ilford HP5+ 400 ISO black & white film and a 6×6cm mask.

Most of the photos are scratched, as in the previous bunch, and the last two have light streaks caused by the piece of sponge that got wound up in the film, causing it to bulge beyond the sides of the spool.

I’ve put the first six photos from the second roll of film shot in my Holga up on Flickr.

These photos were shot on a Holga 120CFN using Ilford HP5+ 400 ISO black & white film and a 6×6cm mask.

A couple of them show signs of scratched film, and I’ve posted one of them for completeness more than anything else. More to come!
