    This one turned out beautifully. What great manipulation of depth of field…….I thought you couldn’t do that on a Holga?

    I always like the Holga shots: they are so other worldly. Nice DOF and that bit of white on the end is lovely. There’s hope, yeah, things are breaking through all that snow!

    now that’s a nice shot!

  5. Thanks everyone. I’m quite pleased it turned out the way it did.

    The depth of field is because I used a close up filter on the lens. So the filter has quite a shallow depth of field. There was about 4 feet between the blooms and the ground.

    It’s a bit tricky because unlike a SLR you can’t see what the lens is seeing so there’s a bit of guesswork, a spot of calculating and a dash of luck involved.

    But as the Holga usually can only focus about 1 metre in front it opens up new possibilities.
