No, there's absolutely no control over a Holga. One shutter speed and aperture. Your teacher will probably break it across his/her knee in front of you. Doesn't mean you can't sneak a few rolls of black and white into the darkroom when nobody's looking... But ask your teacher first.
i'm thinking of buying a holga for my beginners photo class...would that be a wise decision?
The holga (and other lomo cameras) supposedly help you develop composition in photos. I prefer the Diana, but a Holga works. With digital cameras, everything is too easy. I've seen some really cheap Holgas on Amazon...
I've been looking into getting a lomographic camera, but I'm just starting out and I don't know alot about the models they have out and how much they cost. I really want one with a fish eye with flash that will take 35mm film since it's the easiest to get in the stores.
Maybe something along these lines?
If anyone could help it would be great
i have like 4 rolls of film from my diana that i need to process (ugh, money) but i think i'm going down to get them done tomorrow and im pretty excited i must say! ill post some when i get them back!
(love my diana, it seems durable too as i've beaten it up a bit and its still works)
Where can you get the films for Lomo camera's from in the UK?
Oh I really want to get one but I don't want to buy one if 1. I can't get any film anywhere and 2. If I then can't get the film processed. xx
^ There are places. I dont know specifically but when I visited my friend in London, we popped into a shop with him to pick up 120 film he had processed.
Also worse comes to worse, 35mm is processed pretty much anywhere. There are lomo 35mm cameras or you can do modifications on a lomo to take 35mm. I have a Holga with my own specs to run 35mm but you can also by kits to make it easier to convert it as well.
