san jose on a holga

my first time

With the end of production on the Holga cameras, I finally grabbed one while I still could. Here are some photos of downtown San Jose from my first roll of film through my shiny brand new Holga 120N. True to it's heritage, this Holga abounds with light leaks, distortion, vignetting, and everything else that digital cameras work towards eradicating.

about Branden Frederick

I am a photographer: I have fun taking photos, and I always have.

I've had a camera in my hand my whole life, a 110 camera as a kid, and the high school's 35mm SLR later. In 2008 I spent six months doing nothing but taking photos and loved it. From that point on I've had my camera surgically attached to my hand (I lie). I went digital in the year 2000, and I came back to film in 2013. My parents tell me my photos are "nice".
