ENROLL NOW

An introduction and continued studies in medium format black and white photography using the Plastic Holga Lomography Camera. The Holga’s low-cost construction and simple meniscus lens often yield pictures that display vignetting, blur, light leaks, and other distortions. The camera’s quirkiness has brought it a cult following among some photographers, and Holga photos are known worldwide! This course will include image editing & selection, exposure & processing of your film, as well as darkroom-printing in our Crealde darkroom. Expect a field trip, assigned work to take place outside of class, print reviews, and a reconnect with the film-based medium.
