When I first started shooting on the Holga, I figured the best option would be to buy lomo film (also because they were having a pretty good deal on, and I’m cheap that way.). But afterall, the Holga IS a lomo cam, so it can’t go that wrong, can it?
I recently shot off two rolls of lomo film and one Kodak Portra 400, and noticed something peculiar. It’s curious that this is the first time the numbers from the film are so obvious on the final print. I was just glad that there were no light leaks (I have decided I do not like them), but am really not sure how I feel about these numbers… The Kodak ones on the other hand, turned out pretty beautifully. Yes, I know, that’s why I should stay away from the low-quality lomo films. I can see the BFF giving me that look already.
