*when reading the above title, it may be helpful to imagine Marlon Brando in A Streetcar Named Desire. A week with the Holga 60mm f/8 has been on my list for quite some time, and I finally did it. With some more time, I think this cheap hunk of plastic has some possibilities, but I think […]
How many times have I tried to shoot at night for this project? And how many times did I shoot at night during 2012’s 365 project? In any of those times, did I ever try to find a manual setting that would capture color and light the way I saw it? Of course not. So […]
