Josie and I are long time customers of The Urban Shed. We have been going for a few years for the best coffee and sandwiches in Cambridge. For those that don't know about this groovy place are set for an awesome surprise. I wanted to share some of the images we have captured of The Shed to showcase how unique and interesting it is. Wether it be for breakfast in a box or an uber lunch time sandwich, Simon (owner of The Shed) will create you something special to eat.
You can find The Urban Shed nestled down King Street, Cambridge. http://www.theurbanshed.com/
HOLGA TOY CAMERA
Word from China hit recently as I learned that production of the Holga toy camera had ceased. The Holga toy camera with its plastic lens, less than adequate light seals and lack of electronic settings meant taking photos was a world away from digital photography. The Holga has been one of my favourite cameras to capture truly creative images. This plastic camera takes medium format film allowing the photographer to take 12 6x6 photos per roll. Getting the most out of these 12 photos took creativity and luck. But for all the difficulties it was always a surprise every single time I got back a roll of developed film.
If you're interested in getting into film photography the Holga might not be your best option but if you want a camera that gives you a surprise then the Holga is for you. Lomography are selling Holga cameras until stock runs out.
To honour the Holga, here are my favourite Holga photos I have captured in the last few years.
Have you checked out our film photography service?
Here at LightSide we love analogue film photography. You can't beat the look and dynamic range of film. Whether it be standard 35mm photography to specialist 120mm medium format, there is still plenty of opportunity to capture great moments using film. We own a Canon A-1 35mm SLR, which was in the 1970s a very sought after and premium camera. I picked up from Oxfam decades later for £30. Bargain! Check out some of the 35mm film results below.
