Orms Connect Giveaway: Holga Black

  1. “…not knowing how my photos are going to turn out adds to the excitement! Digital preview screens have taken some of the fun out of developing your pictures :)”

  2. I want to win a Holga because I’d love to try and see if I can take cool images, with filter effects, the old school way ( It would be nice to achieve this without the help of a phone app that “fakes” the Holga effect). 

    Holding thumbs 🙂

  3. I want to win a Holga because this is my ultimate style of photography. There are no rules, it’s funky and retro and could make your days that much more adventurous.

  4. i want to win a holga because…ive been bed ridden [back problems] for a whole week without my camera or laptop to even edit photo’s and i am going insane. i need some new inspiration desperately!

  5. I want to win a Holga because of the square format. You ever seen that da Vinci picture, Vitruvian Man? The dude’s in a square. Therefore, if you want to take pictures of people, square format is the way to go.

  6. I would love to win a Holga, because I have a great passion for photography and I think it will help me build upon my knowledge of photography. I love to experiment with different effects on photos and to study it.

  7. I want to win a Holga because I LOVE lomography and am itching to try my hand at it. I’m always in awe when seeing what others have done so I’d love to venture into experimental photography too. I’m a sad law student, so winning a Holga would bring some much needed happiness to my life 🙂

  8. “I want to win a Holga because I love photography and would like to start my own blog soon. Using this type of photography would be an awesome touch to my blog! ♥

  9. I am following you on both facebook and twitter. My twittername: online61524.
    I want to win a Holga because it takes great “grunge” pictures that are more interesting than yet another round of snap shots. I would like to let go of instant gratification adn embrace Lo Fi Photography!

  10. “I want to win a Holga because it would be another way to express my view on the world in a different medium. I’m a photographer that has no bounds and who doesn’t believe in having any kinds of restrictions or hold backs – if it can be done then I want to do it.”

  11. I want to win a Holga because I have just left my girflriend in Europe and I won’t see her for a year! Atleast if I have the Holga I can take nice pictures and send them to her. Please help a brother out!
