In an age of digital imagery, the popularity of these unpredictable little plastic cameras has steadily grown to cult status. Maybe it’s because they’re cheap and accessible, because there are only very limited settings, or maybe it’s because they produce the kind of ethereal asthetic that appears only as a result of their light leaks and low quality plastic lenses. Unpredictable as they are however, for those in the know, there are still methods and techniques to direct the outcome of your images.
If you have fallen in love with one of these little plastic beasties, but want some help to understand and tame it, this Sunday’s Holga & Diana course is for you.
This half day workshop begins at the studio, finishes with a guided shooting session around Brighton and includes:
• A short history of your camera
• Understanding your camera and how it works
• How to load film properly
• Photographic techniques for Holga & Dianas
• 120 film, different types & recommendations
• Advice & common mistakes when developing
• A guided “photowalk” around Brighton
The course runs from 11 - 3 and costs £75 including two films. For more information or to book your place, call 01273 609600 or email
