Panorama Shoot-Out – Part 3: Pink Holga

Time to check out what the contestants can do!

[singlepic id=300 w=320 h=240 float=left]As I said before, the Pink Hoga is my favourite (at the moment). I love them all to bits, but the colour really does something for me. “It’s so gay”, people say – but I think it’s more like a funky breath of fresh air in my drawer.

Like most of the panorama tests, I shot these images using the 12 shot gate, but only advancing the film with the 16 setting. That way, I get an equal amount of overlap from picture to picture.

I can’t take credit for this idea though. I had pondered over how best to make it all as equal as possible, until I came across this article by Rob Turner in JPG Magazine. Some of the gaps still look wonky, but that’s because I’ve only found out about this article half way through my tests. Thanks Rob!

All was shot on expired Fuji RMS, developed in Tetenal Colortec E6 (opened over two years ago, but still going strong), on a few sunny days around Camden, Mount Pleasant and Islington. Enjoy!

My two cents:

I love the way the images blend together. As you will find out shortly, I’ve shot plenty of other images, and often the edges are harsh lines with ugly white gaps in between. Jay no like, innit?

As it turns out, my favourite camera (visually) delivers great results. So far.

But can it hold up against the competition?

We’ll find out soon 😉
