While I wait to hear from the printer, and their ability to downsize the zine to 9×7, I will talk about how I’m shooting right now. As I mentioned in a prior post, I have a Holga plastic lens that works on my digital Olympus camera with the use of an adapter. The lens is supposed to be around 60mm, but on the Olympus with its four thirds sensor, it is doubled to about 120mm, which I like.
I was shooting at the standard aspect of the camera, which is 4:3. The results were a little spotty, with darkened areas at times, or more vignetting than I like, and then I remembered that the original Holga film camera, which uses 120 film, shot in square images. I switched the aspect ratio on the camera to 1:1, or square, and the results were much better.
This has become my favorite kit for the moment. Looking forward to playing with it more over the next couple of months.
