Eric likes to take the road less travelled with his photography, which in this day and age means shooting film! Building on the lo-fi look created by Super 8, Eric discovered the vignetting, soft focus, light leaking goodness of the Holga camera a few years ago. You never know what you’re going to get with this camera. It likes filters, wide angle lenses, no lenses, lots of light, just a little light, flashes, odd perspectives, weird angles, you get the idea. Click on the Holga Camera to see Eric’s Holga Portfolio.
The cheap TLR camera is the common first step that most photographers make into medium-format photography. The film is a few times the size of 35mm and usually used by portrait and landscape photographers. But you don’t need a few thousand dollar Hasselblad setup to take advantage of medium-format’s strengths. Shortly after getting a Holga, Eric found a Yashica 124 TLR for $10, which he quickly broke and replaced with a 124G. Click on the Yashica Camera to see Eric’s Yashica Portfolio.
In addition to these 2 medium-format cameras, Eric also has a Canon Rebel DSLR for the sole purpose of time-lapse photography.
