I bought a Holga 120N camera a couple of months ago but until now I haven’t had time to do anything with it, so tonight while I watch the All Blacks demolish the Irish at rugby I have loaded it with a roll of black and white 120 film. The process was straightforward particularly with the advice provided by Ted Forbes on The Art of Photography podcast; I look forward to seeing the results.
Actually I suspect this roll will not do well as I am also planning to develop it myself. Not having tried that before I suspect the images may not turn out useable. It should be fun to try whatever happens. I don’t think I’ll be giving up on the digital darkroom but I wanted to understand the process with film – if nothing else to remind me how easy we have it now!
In the meantime I have been busy working through some more images from my trip. I am still having trouble deciding what to do and when to stop. There are so many options and styles available, and so many images to work through. That is one advantage of film, I would not have taken 2000 images on film!
