The video for Holice’s latest single, The Hoo Song, is here. The video was shot using a Canon 7D with a Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 lens and edited using Final Cut Pro.
The video stars dancer, Janine Wyse – you can catch her performing in Cross Currents at the Festival Theatre in Edinburgh on June 6th.
Holice were invited to write this track for the soundtrack of the final film in the Twilight franchise, Breaking Dawn. The single is released on Monday April 11th and will be available to purchase on iTunes, Napster and other digital downloads websites.
There is nothing really quite like a photograph taken with a Lomo camera, the Holga being my personal favourite. Yes, lomography is very hipster nowadays – just take a look in Urban Outfitters – but hopefully this means that more people are discovering the joys of shooting with these lovely cameras.
The plastic lens and imprecision are all part of the fun of lomo for me – it’s all about experimentation, estimating your focus and hoping for the best! In this digital age where we’re spoiled with instant gratification in photography, it’s exciting to rummage through a freshly developed roll of film and see how your shots turned out. Lomo really is all about trial and error but when you get a beautiful shot it’s worth the effort.
These images were shot with a Holga 120 CFN, using a 35mm adapter for ease of processing. I’ve left them completely untouched to show the true effects of the camera.
