Throwback Thursday: Before Instagram… Toy Camera Photography
This week’s Throwback Thursday post is dedicated to the Holga, or the Diana, or to lomography. You know, before Instagram there was the real deal. You didn’t just take ten quick photos, pick the best one, run some filters through it and post for your friends to see in an instant. No, there was a sweet roll of 120 in a plastic body with an even cheaper plastic lens. You loaded your film, electrical taped your camera shut and hoped for the best. Then, after a few weeks of taking one image here… one image there… you loaded your film into a Patterson tank, swished some chemicals around and waited to see what would appear.
Well, back in the fall of 2006, this is what appeared.
