Newborn Samuel Issac Martin

I was proud to be asked to photograph newborn Samuel Issac Martin.

At only four weeks his wrinkly skin and expressions were priceless.

It’s so easy to forget how little we all once were.  Babies are so vulnerable, yet I’m still amazed at how quickly they grow and develop. From the first day they enter this world they’re continually changing and gaining their strength. Truly amazing.

Holga Love

You may look upon this camera as something similar to a child’s plastic toy, yet when you experience the true playfulness of it it does exactly what it says on the tin. It will make you fall in love with photography again.

….A plastic shell which memories are made of.

For me it brought out the playfulness within and stripped those limitations put upon me from studying, magazines and other peoples beliefs in what photography should be.

My Holga reunites me with the reason why I fell in love with photography. I believe that you should only follow something you love, which can then make it all the more painful when you feel like you have lost it.

I personally experienced this after finishing university. It took a two year period without  taking a single shot before  I purchased a Nikon d70 (with a little  influence). My love was reunited. In a similar way the Holga has done this for me. As in life things can get a bit too serious, so much so that you stop seeing and appreciating the beauty and freedom around you.

Now this camera is basic to the point that there is no viewing screen, menus or batteries needed. You use film, wind it on yourself and have a dial at the front where you can choose  the distance of the shot you are shooting. It is up to you how long you make the exposure and multiple exposures can be carried out at ease by not winding the film on and taking another shot.

Special thanks to the friend who bought me this gift.
