Re: Anyone using a Holga?

My copy of Michael Kenna's Holga has arrived. What photographic vision this man has - wonderful! Thanks to cariadus for the recommendation.

Certainly is Roger, his vision is incredible. If I had a mere fraction of his compositional skills I would be very happy indeed.

Regarding camera equipment, I once thought (foolishly) that buying better gear was the path to success, but my thoughts on this have been flipped 180, reinforced somewhat having looked at Kenna's Holga images, a simple 'toy' camera with a plastic meniscus lens!

Not Holga as such but a Lensbaby composer pro with double glass lens
