The Happy Mistakes

Shooting film gives some very happy mistakes sometimes, and when you use a super cheap plastic camera and cheap film, these results are even better.


This image was shot using my Holga 120 N, a very cheap plastic camera and lens from a bygone era. They have made a very big comeback in the Hipster revival of all things low fi.


On a camera like the Holga, if you don’t turn the advance wheel you will take a picture over a picture. These double exposures can make wonderfully beautiful images of shapes and colour if controlled correctly. As I use black and white film mostly we can ignore the colour reference, but the odd shapes and textures produced are something to be amazed by.
