Any pro photography lab would have the film and the ability to process it, I would think. Some pros still use film a lot ... for the same reasons people like Holgas. Film imparts a special quality to the image ... it's very different from digital images.

Has anyone tried the 35mm "jack-up" so to speak in their holga?

I love the look because of the neat sprocket holes.. lots of examples on flickr of course: http://www.flickr.com/groups/325190@N20/pool/

I'm trying a couple rolls today and seeing how they turn out. I used foam to fit the 35mm canister, then rubberbands around the uptake spool (?)... like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sporifice/42312990/

^ I have! :p I also sent Gius secret santa Holga with that modification inside it incase he wanted to try it out. And I hope he does. Mods are fun.

It came out well when I tried it. The first one I just did without the sprockets. The pictures came out interesting, there was odd soft fadings in the corners and on some pictures you can see a shadow of sprockets, some even in the middle of pictures.

I'm about to use a slide 36mm film, have them cross process and develop with sprockets framing the picture. Will let you know how it looks. Its my first time trying out cross process too.

a few of my sprocket-hole Holga shots:







it was a lot of fun for this roll/subject matter, but I think they're a little distracting for everyday use! :p

Lomography + Fashion
The resurrection of lomography as a trend has coincided quite appropriately with the current fixation on photographers such as Terry Richardson, Matt Irwin, and Jurgen Teller whose styles are mimicked by the new wave of lomographers.

Popular lomo cameras include the Diana and the Holga which can be purchased online and at Urban Outfitters.

What are your thoughts on this photographic style?

^ Havent shot with mine yet but theres a few online forums for holgas that have helpful tips and would be a better place to check around than here.

Thats a good start off point at least on the basics of Holga IR's

Its so cute and i saw pictures taken with it that i like. Now im only starting argentique photos, and wanted to buy my OWN camera. And what is sooo cool with these are all the accessories and films. Has anyone bought special lenses or backs? Which ones would you advise to buy in first?

I recently bought a Diana Mini and some film from Boots, can't wait to see the results. I'm worried they'll all come out blurry.

Anyone own a Holga twin image maker? I got mine months ago, I load the film and for some reason all my photos come out blank, I have no idea why. I am sure I am loading the film the correct way, as there is only really one way to do so...its frustrating, only 2 photos came out...
