    These were taken on a Holga. Meaning, there will be grain, light leaks and other "imperfections"...I'm also aware of the blur. Partially because it's a HOLGA. Keep these things in mind as you view! Thanks for looking!

    Well I guess it's okay.... Frankly a lot of it is camera shake though. The shutter speed on that thing is only about a 1/30 or 1/50

    The fact that it is a holga does not account for the blur. You could use a tripod and would get no blur. And there's nowt wrong with grain, I personally love it in B&W images especially.
    These images don't do anything for me personally, not great subjects and the shake is too much.
    With the exception of the portrait, a little less blur on this and it would be quite nice I think.

    Thanks guys! Yeah, these are my first couple of rolls of the holga and my first time working with any medium format film. I'll watch for camera shake next time.. I like the self-portrait the best..
