Plastic or Glass, Plastic or Glass, it's that age-old question. In fact, since we started holgablog I've been emailed 4 times about it(wow! a whole 4 times!), we got twittered about it last night, and there must have been at least 20 discussions about it on Flickr. It's a burning question no doubt (although maybe not up there with "how do they make Maltesers?". Really now...how do they make them?).

This is our first article with super-duper-bonus-futuristic-mechanised-twitter-interactive-elements. The article was more experimental to see if the twitter community could get involved directly..it seemed to work ok! We should be experimenting in future with more twitter-interaction goodness. A fellow Holgablog writer, Derek, mentioned something interesting about the increasing popularity of the Polaroid.
The Tour De France 2009 is upon us. “So what?” shouts most of our readership, but persevere and I hope you will be rewarded! The race, one of the hardest mental and physical tests on the planet, has been going strong for over 100 years … Read More →
We received a Holga GTLR through the post today, and figured you might want a brief hands-on mini review in the time being until we get a chance to take some photos (and take some photos of us taking some photos!). We are also getting … Read More →
It’s not often Holgablog features any digital. We don’t have anything against it, but there’s hundreds of digital sites out there. What we do like, however, is LEGO! The Danish building blocks were a staple of most people’s childhood and are still going strong today. … Read More →
The Olympus Trip 35 is a certified classic. Over 10 million sold, relatively cheap to buy 2nd hand(I got mine for £5/$10 on ebay), and with a absolutely cracking lens, you just can’t lose.
It’s WORLD PINHOLE DAY 2009…yay! This guide is a bit late, but it may serve you well in future. I’ve taken one of my old (broken) Holgas and turned it into a pinhole. Here’s how to do it:
In the runup to WPD2009, we are churning out pinhole articles! Our latest is a strange one. You all know you can create a pinhole camera pretty much out of anything you can get your hands on, from tin cans, through to wooden boxes. This … Read More →
Once a year the fantastic people at http://www.pinholeday.org/ organise WPD. A day to celebrate, learn, and use pinhole cameras. If you check out their events page you will see there are many events be held around the world, ranging from exhibitions to classes on how … Read More →
Back in the day, when things were simple, we had one Holga camera: The Holga 120S. But since then, the range of Holga cameras have increased dramatically, ranging from bizarre Hello Kitty branded point and shoot cameras to even bizarrer stereo 3d cameras. As Holga … Read More →
I enjoy doing night shots, I’m by no means great at it, but it’s fun to go out and discover how differently places look at night. Sometimes it works out well, sometimes not so great.
So, you have been around Flickr for a while, uploading some great shots, but no-one is viewing/commenting/appreciating your work...what gives?
Unfortunately, with over 2 billion photos on Flickr, if you want some exposure you need to court it. Like most things in life: Flickr is one giant circle-jerk.
