Perhaps your resolution was to make 2007 the year to get serious about you. To begin investing some of your time and energy (and yes, probably some cash) in developing your one-of-a-kind talents or oddball skills that need fine-tuning. It’s the year to try your hand at pottery. To start staining glass. To pick up belly dancing or the accordion or both. To start doing whatever tickles your creative fancy. It’s all about you, in 2007.
The New Year means registration is open for many a Continuing Ed course. The class we will (hopefully) be heading back to the classroom for is “Toy Cameras” offered by the University of Utah. We’ve been crazy about Holgas ever since this guy who shot both of our weddings used one. Ali liked its effects so much, she opted to insert a Holga print with her wedding invitations.
For $65 (and the purchase of a Holga) you can “free yourself from your dependence on technology, precision, and sharpness as you learn to embrace the imperfections of the toy camera.” Plus, you’ll get to be a rebel: “This class will be an exercise in rule breaking and will give you a new perspective on your own photography. Learn to lose control and see the world in a whole new light!”
Sounds refreshing, doesn’t it? Learn more about the Holga here.
