This year I decided to pick up a Holga Camera just for Burning Man so I could take some medium format photos and get some film photos. Luckily I can find fairly discounted Holga's at the Freestyle photo store in Hollywood, so I could mentally treat it as disposable and not worry about it too much. The "Sunset Blvd." color decorated with some glow in the dark paint produced a camera that seemed at home at Burning Man and in great contrast with the black and white film I loaded in it all week. Dust quickly accumulated inside and after shooting a couple rolls, the foam padding near the film reels started popping off, but it still seems to be functioning. I'll need to give it a good cleaning once I finish with the roll inside. Although I've found proof online of people taking Holgas to Burning Man in the past, I only spotted a couple of film cameras myself this year including a woman with a 35mm camera from Japan and a guy with what looked like a TLR medium format of some sort.
This is the first of a few rolls I was able to develop yesterday!
