    As the title suggests, this was talken with the Holga 120FN toy camera.

    I processed the film and printed the photo myself. I think the digital scan shows how the print looks fairly accurately.

    In the shot, the model was standing in front of some plants, but when I first printed it I was disappointed with the contrast of the photo (the lighting wasn't too great that day). I decided to burn in the background. It was all done manually in the darkroom - no photoshop.

    Critiques please. :mrgreen:

    The image reminds of masquerades done by small scale societies in central Africa. :thumbup:

    Most of photoshop is just darkroom technique digitzed.

    Thanks :)

    Yeah, I know, but it takes more skill to do it in the darkroom, and I (and most people) appreciate it a lot more, so I thought I'd mention it.
