You can follow The Littlest Holga on Twitter (@Littlest_Holga). Probably the most successful thing I’ve ever done with on-line photography was sending a Purple Fluorescent Holga to @Givemeabiscuit (on Twitter) as part of my first EMULSIVE Secret Santa. Half serious and half a joke, Holga was at that time going out of business. So I thought it would be a good gift.
Now Littlest Holga travels the world making fun and fabulous images. Holga was my introduction to medium format during an Experimental Photography class in Monterey. I was so inspired by Holga that I chose to use it for my first 6 months of the 52 Rolls Project. So here are a few of my recent Holga Favorites…..
And Early Holgas from that Experimental Photography Class:
And an image made using the Fisheye lens gift that I received from my first Secret Santa…….

You won’t find my Don Anderson listed online. He died recently and his website has been taken down. Too Bad, because as my Instructor for Experimental Methods and Alternative Processes at Monterey Peninsula College, He was a huge influence. I was introduce to photographic concepts I would never have tried on my own.
So let me show some examples of techniques I never would have tried without Don Anderson:
Cyanotypes & Van Dykes:
Experimental Developing Methods:
Crappy Cameras, Holga & Diana:
The most important thing that I learned was, that even if these are not methods you will focus on, the exposure to these methods will have a positive influence on your Mainstream Photography.
