Wow! That's so cool! (by the lack of finding better words in English ) The ' pillow'-feel of the picture gives it something extra (feels like the building is sucking it's double in). Great double exposure ^_-.
i had something else in mind when i took this shot--I was trying to get them to line up side by side, but instead they overlapped. At first i was disappointed when i got them developed, but then i realized this looked cool anyway [maybe it even looked cooler than what i originally intended lol]. I have a few more double exposures that i havent posted yet, but those too, didnt come out how i planned.
i suggest not being apprehensive. i know the feeling, but you cant be afraid to get creative with the HOLGA. Sometimes it comes out looking great, sometimes it doesnt. but thats the beauty of lomography.
I know what you mean. Sometimes those accidents are blessings in disguise. I've only developed 2 rolls so far. Out of 24 only 4 pictures are any good. I think the only thing keeping me from experimenting more is the cost.
I got a cable release today 35mm adapter on the way.
Oh good! Phew, and here I thought I was just retarded. I've started keeping notes on my exposures so that when I get them back I hopefully learn faster from my mistakes.
re: the 35mm adapter- I like to keep my options open and I love to experiment. Plus I can get 6 rolls of 35mm fujicolor 400 for only 7 bux. It's not the best film but then again this is the Holga were talking about... but yeah that sq. format is rawkin!
keeping notes is a good idea. i was always meaning to write out notes, but i never got around to it. but i try to keep a visual memory of the shot. like i noticed the viewfinder is a poor representation of what gets captured. like, i'll frame something a certain way, then when i get back the film, it looks like someone "zoomed out".
Yes definitely, and it would seem that some of the best shots ever, are totally incidental but great. I think the unexpectedly great ones are fun, because, it's kind of a nice surprise when the film gets developed or you download the current set from a memory card.
