    Why a Diana (or Holga, or Banner or...)

    SFMOMA Umbrella

    The reason I like shooting with plastic cameras is for the simplicity. Working with the Diana, or Holga or whatever, strips down photography to the essentials. You, the subject, a simple lens to refract the image onto a medium. It doesn't get any plainer than that!

    The image in this post was one of the first I ever took with my first Diana, a Windsor camera I picked up at the thrift store for $5.

    Simplicity is the real meaning. I have recently discovered this camera and has changed my way of understanding photography. Kind regards

    hello - the holga refreshed my photography. as a professional photographer with (at the time) 20 years of shooting, the holga allowed me a way to have fun with photography again. i have been shooting holga for 10 years now. in fact, outside of my day-to-day photography, holga is the only photography i do! it is such a welcome reprieve from the world of digital shooting! ~ from somewhere on colorado's continental divide...fotomatt...http://www.LITfoto.com" rel="nofollow">LITfoto
