holgas are made of plastic, ok? the whole thing is plastic and even when you press the shutter, it seems almost like if you’re faking it. the noise is kind of empty, like if there was nothing inside and no image whatsoever was being captured. but it is, and i think that is one of the good things. it seems so less pretentious than all the other digital fancy cameras. people may even think that your playing with a toy camera! oh wait, this is a toy camera!
but then you develop your film and kind of fall in love with the results. and i’m not sure how it works with you, but sometimes this isn’t love at first sight. i need to take some time, before looking again to the pictures and then loves starts to be felt. lomography is not only about not caring whether something good will come out or not, you may produce something really pretty… and magical. and i always like to see my work as such.
