800 Lomo - Holga 135bc

So far so good on my commitment to a film camera a month - Woohoo! The only hurdle so far is that I have too much film - rolls that I never got developed and never got to share with you guys. So even though I'm going off course here, I still thought it was better to share these rogue rolls than to not! So the plan is to get around blogging my random rolls whilst still doing my film camera a month promise :) :) 

Sound good? I hope so :) 

The first random roll was all the way back from my trip to Japan. I was quite excited to see this roll because it contained one of my favourite things from our trip - fruit bus stops!!! I used my Holga 135bc, which you can read more over here. The Holga 135bc is a super cheap, basic, one-setting camera that I used with a lomography 800 Colour roll of film. 800 ISO turned out to be a perfect speed for that one camera settings giving lots of light and thus probably exposed photos :) 










and some shots from Rakutenchi theme park in Beppu
The Holga 135bc with its plastic lens and very simple design ends up producing very soft photos but I actually think it works really great for those fruit bus stops which were taken in very very bright sunlight (almost too contrasty for my digital!) Lesson learnt - high ISO film and very bright lighting go down a treat with the Holga 135bc!
