Ominous!

OK so I've tried this holga thing a few times, and I stink at it. I must be doing something wrong.

You showed me how to load the film, so I'm at least doing that part right.

Do you always use color film? Or do you use B&W then color it in?

And do you get just the negatives developed, or do you have the photo store print the photos too?

And lastly (sorry for twenty questions), if you don't get the prints printed for you, how do you get the images printed? Negative scan? CD?

Thanks, holga pro!

How's that vegan thing workin out?

Holga 101
I always use color film

I usually just get the negatives developed and scan in the film. I just bought a new scanner to do this because the printer sucks at printing out my images. You have so much more control over the images if you do it yourself, and you can use your creativity and vision to make something out of nothing from your negatives.

That's about it. I usually only end up with one or two images I like from a roll, so I think the key is just taking a ton of pictures.

The vegan thing is miserable. I think it's going to have to be altered to fit my lifestyle. I'm figuring out I don't like vegetables enough to eat them as a whole meal...unless there is cheese or dressing involved. ugh.
