Well, the votes are in for the winner of the Holga Hustle film photo contest.  Although there were votes cast across the roster, we do have a clear winner.  And the winner is…Georgette!  Her two photos garnered equal acclaim from you all.  Georgette receives the Holga newbie kit containing her Holga (named Casablanco), a DVD and 5 rolls of film — congratulations!  And thank you to all photogs who came out and played with film for the day and then shared ideas and snacks afterward at Baker Creek Bistro.  Our prints are still up in the Bistro for the next little while if you want to see how great film looks printed on vinyl.

Before you head out this weekend, make sure you stop over at Samantha’s blog as it is her turn to host the Fabulous Film Fridays project.  Being a lawyer, she’s a very analytical type and is busy pondering the differences between film and digital.  I think her film images evoke more mood than the digital comparisons in this case!

* Density can be varied from 4 to 8 f-stops just by rotating the indicator from Min to Max

* Polarization is controlled by rotating BOTH rings together, at any density setting

* Color enhancement is always working to subtly intensify the colors in your scene

* Allows you to use longer exposures to blur motion or flowing water, or other long-exposure effects

* Permits use of larger apertures in bright light for more shallow depth-of-field effects

* The built-in polarizer reduces glare from sky, water, wet surfaces, glass, and other reflective surfaces to improve color saturation and contrast

* Can function like an “iris” for digital video cameras to control exposure

* Available in 77mm only (Standard and Thin Ring mounts)
