Holga portrait

Noriko

Taken with the Holga 120 CFN, using Lucky 400 ISO film.

I don’t usually take portraits with the Holga because it’s always seemed like a ridiculous thing to do. I can’t get close enough to my subjects in the way I like, and the camera distortion didn’t seem right for portraits. Now after getting this shot back, I’m not sure why I’ve shied away from photographing people with it. I obviously need to reconsider.
