Camera review: Holga 135BC – by Lorraine Healy

When I was writing my eBook on the Holga cameras, I made the assumption that I would be covering as many Holga models as I could get my hands on—medium format Holgas, that is. I would not even deign to take a look at 35mm Holgas, which I considered an afterthought and beside the point. After all, you couldn’t even shoot through the sprockets with them! Who would want a 35mm Holga? In short, I completely ignored them, except for the fun Holga half-frame. After the book came out, I received a very kind message from a fellow photographer...

Mini review: JCH Streetpan 400 & Rollei CN 200 (AGFA Digibase 200) – by Lorraine Healy

The first time I saw EM’s “Secret Santa” idea was just before Christmas 2015 and, whether because I was fairly new to EMULSIVE, or because I was too thick to comprehend a wonderful concept, I didn’t sign up. When I saw the articles afterwards, and the many comments, it dawned on me what an absolutely fabulous idea this was. I made myself the promise that I would sign up in 2016. If you are new to the site and don’t know what EM’s Secret Santa concept is all about, this is it, in a nutshell: you sign up to...

Camera review: Me and my Lomography LC-A 120 – by Lorraine Healy

The LCA 120 camera is part of the LCA family of cameras, but I believe it is the only one which is a creation of the Lomography Society and not a reworking of the old U.S.S.R . Lomo cameras—which, as far as I know, were all 35mm. I spent a long time wondering whether to get this camera or not. At $430 it seemed very pricey (I still think it is) but I was really loving the images by other photographers which I saw posted on the Lomography site. A month after I bought it, having shot only maybe...

Travelogue: Moroccan autumn – Lorraine Healy

In October 2015 I spent 10 days in Morocco with a small group of photographers led by Lee Frost, the renowned English landscape photographer. Morocco is a photographer’s delight, a place of maze-like medinas (old towns) filled to the brim with artisans and craftspeople plying ancient trades: leather dying and tooling, metal-working, carpet weaving, bread making in communal ovens.

Going with a photographer who has taken groups to the area for years, though, made a huge difference in terms of not...
