Holga Week [GALLERY] by Simeon Smith

Every year, around about this time I see someone online using the hashtag #HOLGAWEEK and I think - Bloody hell, has it already been a year?!

Holgas are (usually) medium format plastic cameras, much in the same vein as the Diana. There's a lot of talk online about which one is "better", but that's kind of like asking which is a "better" car for F1, an Citroen C1 or a Peugeot 107; they're both practically the same level of crap. 

I love shooting with these cameras though, and was a bit disappointed I only had time to put one roll of film through the Holga during official #HOLGAWEEK. 

Here are some photos from that roll:

I don't often shoot digital by Simeon Smith

But when I do I use the cheapest plastic lens from a toy camera that I can find, and mount it onto one of my wife's posh DSLRs. 

All shot today, all straight from the camera, all manual focus and exposure. No editing wizardry here.
