Holga Lens

Here are some images taken with my new Holga lens! A friend of mine recently told me about the Holga camera company and I am so glad that she did! She and I both ordered Holga lenses for ourselves and using them has been so much fun. We have both gotten some creative images and we have only been experimenting with them for a few days. I am excited to take more images with this lens and I will post updates whenever I do!

Holga lenses are known for their light leaks and vignetting. This has led to a large following from artists who like the lo-fi photography style. I am a fan of lo-fi photography and I personally love the aesthetic of the images I have taken with the Holga lens so far. It will be fun to see how the lens performs in different lighting conditions.

I bought this lens for myself as a Christmas present. I paired it with my Nikon D750. You can purchase the same lens here. It is an affordable lens you are sure to enjoy if you like to be creative with your photography!

Using the lens

The lens attaches easily and securely to my camera. It is much smaller and lighter than any other lens I have ever used. The focal length is 60mm. It is quite dark but this wasn’t an issue thanks to my speed light. (You can buy the same speed light here). The images in this post had additional lighting coming from a ring light. I filmed a behind-the-scenes video from the ring light that you can watch here.

The first portraits that I took with the Holga lens were self-portraits. I set the camera up on my tripod and used the timer. The first image in this post was taken with a shutter speed of 1/125 and ISO 4000. The other images were taken with a shutter speed of 1/125 and ISO 5000.

Do you have a Holga lens? Do you like the first images I took with mine? Let me know in the comments, or contact me here.
