First Playdate with Holga

A couple of weeks ago the Holga 25mm f/8 lens I ordered from Hong Kong arrived. I finally took it out of the box and decided to play around this afternoon. I shot with a sepia filter. I love the air of mystery, even enchantment, it can lend to a scene.

Tugaloo State Park’s Sassafras Circle Trail

I stopped by Tugaloo State Park today on my way back to North Carolina. Recently I’ve been working on a project where I shoot with a sepia filter. Today I took my camera out and decided to play a bit more with the filter on Tugaloo’s Sassafras Circle Trail. The photos have little to no post-processing. The sepia is perfect for conveying the feel of the morning light and highlighting the quirky lines of the trees both standing and fallen.

A Little Fun with my iPhone on a Wet, Foggy Day

image

There was a beautiful fog when I stepped outside work today. I love fog (see here and here). I will stop on the side of the road if needed in order to get a shot. Fortunately, I didn’t have to do that today.* The field behind the Y–right across the street–was beckoning with oh-so-many possibilities.

I shot in black and white with MPro, but when I came home I couldn’t resist playing around. I’m searching for a formula for a certain type of sepia and I haven’t found it yet. I’ll be patient. I’ve only recently started mixing different filters from different apps to find the perfect one. Today I played with the photos in Snapseed and Stackables apps. I didn’t get it today, but I definitely had fun trying. The collage was made with Moldiv.

*Does stopping by the library to get a picture of the water tower count?
