I finally got the first roll shot in my Holga 135BC — a belated Christmas present from the ‘rents — developed, and was pleasantly surprised. I thought they were going to be underexposed, because I stupidly believed the sunny weather forecast and loaded a roll of Kodak Ektar 100, and of course it turned out to be totally overcast. I did open the aperture up to the cloudy/flash setting, which seems to have compensated enough.
Verdict: I like this camera. The focus is pleasantly off, making your subjects appear as if emerging from a slight fog; and the vignetting is subtle but definitely present, not always the case when shooting 35mm. The viewfinder that’s cut into the flip-up eyeshade appears to be true to form too, because I shot a couple of verticals with it and they’re framed how I remember them being with that viewfinder.
AHHH THERE’S SOMEONE IN THE WINDOW!!!… I don’t know why that’s creepy. It just is. I didn’t notice them when I took the shot.
I like this photo a lot. I just like reflections in water.
You can’t go to St. Martinville and not take a photo of the Evangeline Oak. I’m pretty sure it’s against the law.
