descrates asked: amazing pictures from the work of yours i've seen! i was wondering, what camera did you start out with? im using a holga 35mm right now and im a beginner, any tips/advice? also whats your favourite lens? :)
hey sorry about the belated reply!
holgas are a fun first camera; I personally started on film with an Olympus OM-10, which is quite a fun first camera, but I think it’s good your first time is with a holga; they teach a lot about lighting and shadows and basics of photography in the same ilk as black and white film. Tips/advice? Mainly, shoot that which you find interesting and love; don’t particularly go around trying to make much out of the mundane if it is mundane to you; shoot what captivates you and drives you, and that which you find engaging and interesting. Also; black and white film will teach you everything you need to know about lighting and shadows in film; shoot a few rolls on black and white and you’ll be a pro at understanding how film works and how to transfer the image in your head onto film in no time! Remember, enjoy- shoot when you want to shoot, find joy in capturing!
hope those are of some help, probably not, my apologies for somewhat superfluous advice!
Favourite lens? That’s a tricky one! I usually just use whatever lens is available; I’m personally not a big can of fisheye lens (if that’s what it’s called); I think it has a slightly gimmicky quality to it. However, I can foresee in time eating my own words, so who knows!
