Holga Experiments

These images are from a trip to visit friends in South Carolina. The Holga was becoming a permanent fixture and it was being used more often. I had just read an article about creating ‘panoramas’ with the Holga and wanted to try it. There are frames I will not share–ones where the direction mattered! Learned a few things this trip.

The Holga has a unique look, but the subject matter is really important. It is not the quick fix for every situation and every subject. I’ve learned that a few times. A strong, well composed subject should ‘survive’ any approach by the photographer. It is wonderful when the materials match the subject and enhance the visual impact.

These were the first images I made of roadside memorials. It’s still a subject I find sad and fascinating.
