After almost two weeks of waiting I’m so happy to introduce my new toy! Everybody say hello to Siobhan! Yes, I do name my possessions, especially gadgets that I use!
A lot of people have inspired me to go analogue there’s Yoj and Nickiferous who have provided me with valuable tips and also wonderful inspiration. There’s dearest Kim and Raisa, two sweet and uber creatives who have so generously allowed me to borrow their baby analogues and play with it. So yes, the commitment phobe has taken the plunge.
It started out with Quincy (my Fuji Instax) and now I have Siobhan. I chose a Holga K-200NM because it seemed like a fun camera to have since I’m used to 35mm film as opposed to the 120 used by more popular Holga models. I’d rather have something that’s familiar and less of a hassle for me to learn to use.
What I liked? Aside from the cute hot red color and the oohs and aahs I get when I take it out of my bag, I liked that it already comes with fisheye lens and viewer and a few flash filters. There’s also a button dedicated to help you take photos with multi-exposure. Plus it’s a complete no-brainer , well I hope I’ve been doing it right!
I finished my first roll quite quickly though, in a span of two and a half days. Part of me is apprehensive that the pictures will suck and I wasted a perfectly good roll of film, but I’ve decided not to stress about it. So *fingers crossed* in a few days time I can share a few photos from Siobhan.
Before I go, here are a few of Flickr and Lomography K-200NM photos!
