A cheap plastic camera doesn’t have to be naked and ugly! Here are some of my works on various ‘toy’ cameras …

Stardust La Sardina : The most girly design I’ve done … a La Sardina for a friend.

Summer Holga : A last minute design for a friend …

Diana’s Butts : A fun design (with a crappy name) Diana+ made specially for ThirtySix’s 1st anniversary.

Woodpecker, Fly : A ‘wooden’ version of the famous Blackbird, Fly camera … made specially for those guys in Superheadz. Camera sponsored by 8storeytree.

Pop Diana+ : A slightly different approach compared to the ‘Woodpecker, Fly’ and Holga cameras I worked on. This time, I decided on a rather ‘raw’ & ‘pop’ look for the design.

Playground Holga : A crazy idea which turned out to be one of my personal favourite.

Woody Holga : My first ever attempt at dressing up a camera. Sold it off in a charity sale.

Postage-free Holga : A stamp covered Holga with a coat of clear paint. It was pretty challenging working with those old stamps as they were very fragile.

*** Here are some other images of dressed up Holga cameras sent to me by readers ***

  1. @Jenni : Thank you

  2. Hi i love the lego one. Any idea where i can get that? If any one do please email to this email felchia.jx@gmail.com thanks(:

  3. @Fel : I made that one and it was sold in a charity sale some time ago. Sorry I’ve no idea if anyone else has made a similar one or has the buyer put it up for sale later on. 🙂

  4. Will it be possible if you make another one?

  5. @Fel : So sorry to disappoint you but I won’t be able to make another one. Firstly … it was supposed to be a ‘one piece only’ when I sold it and secondly … I don’t really like doing the same thing again. Hope you understand. I’ve been saying this but maybe I can *cough* repeat it again … I’m trying to find time to work on some new designs/ideas but … *cough* free time is something that is hardly in my vocabulary anymore. 😀

  6. These are amazing! I already covered one of mine in feathers (click my name for link) but the anti-slip Holga has inspired me to knit a skin for another one (at first-glance I thought exact-colour had crocheted that fetching blue & white skin!)

  7. @6x6pix : Your chicken Holga is cool and very interesting! Hahaha! Now how do you actually bring it out for shoots? Hahaha! Don’t me adding your link here for those who wanna take a look at your cool work. http://www.tasteslikeyellow.com/6×6/chicken

  11. Impressive designs!!! I love the lego holga and butts diana! So cute and colourful!

  12. @cutebun : Thank you. 🙂

  13. We always reeembmr our first.Plastic camera, that is. Mine was a modified Holga. I ordered it while working on a long-term, out-of-town project in Greenville, Texas. Aimlessly surfing the net one afternoon, I found some images made with a toy plastic camera of a cemetery in New York City. I was mesmerized. A few clicks and a couple of Google searches later, I purchased what would become my precious Holgy. That pile of plastic and a fistful of film were waiting for me when I returned home. I was immediately sent to Pascagoula, Mississippi on a new project, so that is the city where I lost my toy camera virginity. At first, I thought my return to film-based photography was, like Proust’s madeleine, a remembrance of things past. I certainly realized how sterile digital photography was compared to the tactile experience of inserting a roll of 120. I also relished the sweet pain of delayed gratification mailing the film off to a lab in California and waiting and waiting and waiting for the return of my prints. That four years and countless rolls of film ago. Today, I am the steward of a second Holga (one can never have too many), a niew Diana+, an original Diana, a Banner, and an Arrow (thank God for eBay), as well as a Horizon 202 panoramic. I define myself as a toy camera photographer, to which most people respond with Huh? or What’s that? followed by Why? My response usually includes something about obtaining images possible only with the combination of film and low-fi optics and the unpredictable nature of the two.But that changed two months ago. That is when my mother asked me to help her clean out her storage room. One large tub was filled with old family photos. And there, in all that deckle-edged, black and white, Kodak Brownie blurriness, was my toy camera A-ha moment. It was a truly Freudian experience. Sometimes a plastic camera is more than a plastic camera. It is a return to my childhood. Like a long-forgotten dream, I realize how those images informed my memory of my childhood. There I am in all my out-of-focus, snapshot glory, playing with the garden hose, petting my beagle, Pete, standing next to my pet duck, Ducky Doodle, in a shallow wading pool, holding my great-grandmother’s hand, and showing off my new pair of cowboy boots. No wonder I cherish the portrait I took of my youngest son last winter, standing with my old Flexible Flyer sled. Except for the Gap sweatshirt, it could just as easily have been of me 35 years ago.That is why now that I have gone plastic, I can never really go back. And, why I will always reeembmr my first.

  14. @Youssef : That’s awesome!

  17. Lovely work. Does the Blackbird Fly come apart easy enough to cover in stickers like that? I have been debating getting one with the intention of repainting it, but i’m not sure if you can take the front colour face off to do so, and I’m not sure how fiddly it’ll be painting around the two lenses.

  18. @Batman : I did not take apart the BBF to cover it in stickers. That made doing it a lot harder but I was reluctant to take it apart, fearing that it might be hell putting it together again. Many delicate parts in there. If you are painting it, why not try tape up the lenses before you start painting? That might save you lots of time (and headache).

  27. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  28. Thanks for your article on the traveling industry. We would also like to include that if you are a senior taking into account traveling, it’s absolutely important to buy traveling insurance for older persons. When traveling, older persons are at high risk being in need of a health care emergency. Receiving the right insurance package for your age group can protect your health and give you peace of mind.

  32. I have really learned new things by your site. One other thing I’d prefer to say is that newer pc os’s tend to allow a lot more memory to be utilized, but they also demand more storage simply to work. If one’s computer is unable to handle far more memory plus the newest application requires that memory increase, it might be the time to buy a new Laptop or computer. Thanks

  33. Thanks for some other great post. The place else may anyone get that type of information in such an ideal means of writing?
    I’ve a presentation next week, and I’m at the look for such information.

  34. Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble
    with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard
    work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to
    prevent hackers?

  41. I have learned some new things out of your blog post. One other thing I have noticed is that generally, FSBO sellers will reject you. Remember, they can prefer to not ever use your services. But if you maintain a stable, professional partnership, offering aid and remaining in contact for four to five weeks, you will usually have the capacity to win a meeting. From there, a listing follows. Cheers

  43. 69 yr old man. Long time Viagra user while married. Worked well within its limitations (empty stomach, etc). Divorced and no sex for 2.5 years. Went to Cialis 5mg daily since I started dating again. Good results with few side effects. I should mention I experience upper leg pain and I stopped. After a few days I went back to 5mg daily and no leg pain. Body adjustment I guess. I kept a log for three months. Here are my recommendations. Cialis 5mg daily. Cialis 20mg if you’re expecting sex. Cialis 5mg might be enough but 20mg is amazing. That said, if you have psych issues causing problems, I tried 100mg Viagra with Cialis 5mg until they’re resolved

  44. My spouse and i have been now delighted when Jordan could finish off his reports using the precious recommendations he made through the web pages. It’s not at all simplistic just to always be making a gift of tips and tricks which often people today may have been making money from. So we discover we need you to be grateful to because of that. All the illustrations you made, the simple website navigation, the friendships your site make it easier to instill – it’s got all awesome, and it’s really letting our son and the family do think the theme is excellent, and that is incredibly pressing. Thanks for the whole thing!
