Shot with a holga on Tri-X 400.
I like them both, and think the softness could have worked for both subjects but they are too soft/blurry for me
'Tis the nature of the holga my friend. I chose this camera for these because of it's softness. I was going for a kind of squinting abstract-ish comparison....
I understand the effects and softness and vignetting of the holga but I have seen pictures from holga that have some sharpness to them, and I am saying that I would like them a little sharper (which a holga is capable of), and you can agree or disagree as you like
I understand your opinion. Sharpness is sometimes completely overrated in my opinion.
Therefore, I will choose to disagree.
Thank you for your thoughts,
I like the field one the best, but they do work as a pair very nicely.
The first one is pretty cool.
I looked through your flickr, you've got some real interesting, thoughtful work. Nice.
I really like #1.
EDIT: By the way, thought I should mention that I love your diptych self-portrait. I remember when you posted it, but I couldn't remember if I commented on how much I liked it. This one: http://www.flickr.com/photos/crawdaddio1/2091887882
Thank you very much samguss, rob and plentygood.
I think the pictures need some of this...
Other than that I really like them both.
